Abhijit Medhi, his wife and son arrived in Toronto in October 2012. Both social workers from India, Medhi and his wife saw a great opportunity to start a new life and get global experience in Canada. “We came for better career opportunities and a better lifestyle,” explains Medhi.

While in India going through the immigration process, Medhi participated in the Canadian Immigrant Integration Program (CIIP) through which he developed an action plan to tackle his job search in Canada.
