MOSAIC Family, Settlement and Employment Programs including Vancouver Northeast WorkBC participated in a Settlement and Career Fair hosted by Newcomers Canada. Over 900 people attended the event, many of whom were open work permit holders, permanent residents, some who just arrived a week ago, and students as well as visitors looking into settling in Canada.
The MOSAIC booth was very busy. Staff presented our various program offerings to eager visitors seeking useful information. The majority of people were looking for help with their job searches and career pathways, as well as assistance in obtaining their permanent residency. Many participants had questions around pathways to getting back to their careers or tapping into alternative career pathways.
MOSAIC is one of the largest settlement organizations in Canada. Provincially, MOSAIC provides more employment supports and programs than any other immigrant serving organization in B.C. Our expertise in employment services resulted in MOSAIC being the only immigrant serving organization to be awarded a contract to deliver services through the B.C. Government’s Employment Program of B.C. To learn more, please visit mosaicbc.org/about.
