Immiducation is a career and education network of immigrants by immigrants.
After coaching many immigrants and hearing of so many rejections and barriers to career growth due to “lack of Canadian experience” as well as inadequate access to the right network for referrals, we decided to do something about it.
With Canada's birth rate on a steady decline and a rapidly aging population, the work force has been shrinking and the demand for labor increasing
To combat this, Canada plans to welcome an average of 400,000 immigrants ever year; with the Economic (Skilled workers) category accounting for more than half of this target
Although numerous immigration policies and programs have made it possible for skilled professionals to migrate into Canada, newcomers continue to face significant barriers navigating and integrating into the Canadian workspace
There is a general lack of acceptance and recognition of foreign education and work experience which stunts the success of immigrants and creates an obvious divide between the immigration efforts of the Government and the realities on ground for professional immigrants
We need to switch the narrative.
Immiducation is here to bridge this gap as a global network of professional Immigrants supporting and accelerating immigrant success through learning resources, mentorship and community
