The Employment and Life Skills Program (ELS) is Making Changes Association’s foundational program. At its essence, this program is an empowerment process for immigrant women, increasing their personal power through participation so that they can take action to improve their circumstances.
The program offers a series of workshops that help immigrant women plan and prepare for their future in Canada. The training provided builds confidence and skills in the areas of career planning, communication, assertiveness, Canadian business culture and accessing community resources.
The ELS Program includes:
- Effective Resume Writing
- Interviewing Skills
- Online and Offline Networking
- Canadian Business Culture
- Personality Dimensions
- Career Planning and Innovative Job Search
The program is offered free of charge and we offer free childcare for participants with children 6 months – 6 years old.
- Permanent Resident or Convention Refugee
- Minimum Canadian Language Benchmark 3
