Connect With Immigrant Talent Pre-arrival
In a globally interconnected world, the opportunities for employers to tap into international talent have never been greater.

CanPrep, a national program lead by JVS Toronto in partnership with TRIEC and others, offers employers the opportunity to connect to immigrant professionals before they arrive in Canada.

Through CanPrep, immigrant professionals are exposed to the Canadian workplace culture and job market pre-arrival. As an employer, you can raise awareness of and promote your brand as an employer of choice to internationally trained professionals who are already approved for permanent residency and are destined for Canada in the next two to 12 months.
