As a skilled immigrant, you can benefit from joining a network in a number of ways:

  • Develop professional relationships and networks in your field
  • Participate in events, programs and activities to help you become job-ready such as mentoring programs and professional development sessions
  • Get advice and support on the licensing process for regulated professions
  • Access information on labour market trends, employment opportunities and programs
  • Gain experience by volunteering
