Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, Shelly Glover announced that Canadian government and Manitoba are providing the required skills and the work experience to young Canadians in Winnipeg to find jobs.
Employment Solutions for Immigrants (ESI) is being paid over $1.1 million from both the governments for two projects to aid 140 youth confronting obstacles in finding jobs.
One project will reportedly assist 120 immigrant youth to acquire skills required to get employed by means of conducting workshops on subjects such as communication skills, job search techniques and understanding the expectations of Canadian employers. Also, the reports indicated that the participants gain work experience from employers locally. Health care, retail, trades, technical and professional services are considered to be the possible sectors for work placement.
Another project will apparently provide 20 youth with experience of work in fields that are in high demand. Some of these include health care services, transportation and manufacturing sectors. In addition, youth will take part in workshops conducted on subjects such as communications skills, time management, conflict resolution and goal setting.
