Workplace Transition Program

With the goal of improving recruitment and retention of IENs, CARE Centre has developed a new Workplace Transition Program (WTP). The focus of the program is to provide supports and resources for IENs and their employers in overcoming challenges during recruitment, orientation and transition/integration. The WTP components can be facilitated as a full package of courses and services, or taken individually. The WTP components include:
