Information Session 1 - Career Bridging Program
The Career Bridging Program (CBP) consists of four weeks of classroom training, followed by eight weeks of volunteer work placements.

Session starts from 6th September 2022.
Classes take place Monday-Friday from 9:00 am- 1:30 pm and run for four weeks.

This program was developed to aid newcomers with professional backgrounds in their transition into the Canadian workforce. When entering the workforce in a new country newcomers must learn a new workplace culture and set of employment laws, bridging programs are here to help prepare students for this transition. The in-class portion of this program covers the Canadian application process, financial literacy, Canadian workplace culture and Canadian employment standards. The class includes a computer skills/business certificate component as well.

In-class training consists of:

Week 1: the online application process, resumes, cover letters, aptitude testing, reference checks, Canadian workplace culture and the norms to expect in Canadian workplace environments.

Week 2: workers’ rights and responsibilities set out by the Ministry of Employment Standards, the SK Human Rights Code, health and safety in the workplace as well as employee manuals.
