Bridge Training Program for new Immigrants

To help newly landed immigrants integrate into a new life in Canada, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney announced, Federal Funding for the Bridge Training Program for New Immigrants, last March 25, 2011.

And I quote,




"“This program helps skilled immigrants in Ontario enter and integrate into the Canadian labour market,” said Minister Kenney. “It is absolutely critical to engage employers in this process, and this program does just that.”

The Bridge Training program has been co-funded since 2007-08 by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario. Given the success of this program, the Government of Canada is continuing its contribution with $12M in 2011-2012 and $10 million in 2012-2013.

To date, over 200 projects have been funded and over 35,000 immigrants in Ontario have benefited from the program.."


This Bridge Training program for new Immigrants to Canada is a joint project between the Federal and the Ontario Government of Canada.
