Many Newcomers to Canada come with health care experience. For various reasons, many newcomers cannot find work in the Canadian health care sector because Canada does not recognize their experience and credential from their home country.

Job Skills offers Newcomers who are health care professionals in their home country an opportunity to find employment in the Canadian health care system through the Bridge to Healthcare Alternatives Online program. This Welcome Centre initiative trains professionals with health care work experience to find an alternative career path in their new country. This online program focuses on helping individuals look at career paths in the non-regulated health care industry where certification may not be required.
