Contemporary Realities of Newcomers

Economic integration is a foundational dimension of the immigrant settlement process. Employment is a core issue of settlement and newcomers’ human capital is required to match Canada’s labouring market needs. The employability of newcomers depends on several factors such as educational credentials, the ability to converse in English or French, and the notion of Canadian experience including technical skills and soft skills (Wilson, et al., 2017).

To explore newcomers’ abilities in enhancing economic integration, OHG adopts strength-based practices and client-centered approaches.
