We are in the midst of summer in Canada and the SOPA program is growing every day! With close to 1400 client registrations, the program is now helping pre-arrival clients from all over the world to arrive prepared. Clients are praising the SOPA courses and orientation and they are telling their friends, family and neighbours about this terrific opportunity.
Whether it’s introducing an engineer to Engineers BC, helping an Ontario bound accountant with her resume or an IT professional to better understand workplace culture in Atlantic Canada, SOPA intake counsellors and facilitators, from the east coast to the west, are helping our clients and future community members prepare for work in their destined Canadian communities by providing crucial information in that local context.
MOSAIC is the sole proud provider of Settlement Online Pre-Arrival (SOPA) in British Columbia which is a partnership of settlement agencies across Canada led by ISANS Nova Scotia. SOPA BC staff has over 20 years combined experience providing employment services to immigrant job seekers in British Columbia.
CCIS is made up of 200+ multicultural, multilingual, and multidisciplinary staff members, as well as 1,500 volunteers, who collectively speak more than 60 languages. We are proud to work in partnership with local organizations, educational institutions, and members of the business community to deliver 70 programs and services out of 7 locations, as well as 25 outreach locations in Calgary and Southern Alberta.
We are very excited to announce the launch of the SOPA program across Canada. We are now delivering in the Atlantic region, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. By participating in SOPA, immigrants will arrive in Canada better prepared, be more confident about Canadian cultural expectations, and enter the work force sooner.
