CENTRAL OKANAGAN EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE SERVICE OPENS IN KELOWNA:

 

Offering assistance to unemployed Immigrants with job search and foreign credentials recognition.

 

Central Okanagan Immigrant Employment Service (COIES) offers culturally sensitive services for unemployed Newcomers, Immigrants, Visible Minorities, Refugees and First Generation Canadians.

 

Language difficulties, cultural differences and even Canadian job-search techniques can be overwhelming for many Newcomers.  One of the biggest barriers to securing employment is having foreign credentials recognized in Canada.

 

COIES services focus on job-search but also provides information on educational upgrading and credentials evaluation. COIES also conducts a variety of free computer and job-search workshops specifically geared for Immigrants.  Also offered is access to computers, faxing and photocopying of resumes and job leads.

 

The Government of Canada contributes funding to this initiative.
