INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS PROJECT


“CCI’s Settlement Department has created a new program titled International Students Project, which is aimed at assisting International Students in Canada with their settlement needs with a particular focus on employment. The main objective of this project is to ensure that International Students have the right tools to find appropriate employment that would lead them to become eligible for Permanent Residence under existing Express Entry’s Canadian Experience Class. Clients of this program can expect to develop skills on pre-employment capabilities, such as resume building, interview mentorship, job-postings referrals; as well as tailored information regarding Study Permit/Post-Graduate Work Permit applications for them and their dependent family members.
