Contemporary Realities of Newcomers

Economic integration is a foundational dimension of the immigrant settlement process. As employment is a core issue, newcomers need to match their own skills with Canada’s labour market. The employability of newcomers depends on several factors such as educational credentials, the ability to converse in English or French, and working experience including technical skills and soft skills (Wilson et al., 2017).

To explore newcomers’ abilities in achieving economic integration, OneHub Growth addresses systemic issues and adopts strengths-based perspectives to:

  • Identify personal goals
  • Assess personal strengths to help clients reach their goals
  • Understand the obstacles and barriers that impede goal achievement
  • Use one’s strengths and capacities to overcome barriers
  • Emphasize personal growth and development

Public Speaking 101 for Newcomers

The program focuses on helping newcomers achieve confidence and gain improvement in public speaking, with English being the primary language.

Everyday English for Newcomers

Everyday English helps students expand their vocabulary by introducing words and conversations used in different scenarios.

1-day Essential Employability Skills Program for Newcomers

Our pre-employment programs acknowledge the importance of Essential Employability Skills in the workplace and incorporate these requirements into a job-seeking journey as part of our course curriculum.
