Settlement Online Pre-Arrival (SOPA): Arrive Prepared

One of the challenges faced by new landed immigrants is how to compete with the labor market.  How do they prepare themselves to land a job that they want, to get a job which is in line with their training and experience acquired from outside Canada.

There are available support more than one to get you prepared for this.  One of them is the Settlement Online Pre-Arrival (SOPA).  The good thing about SOPA is that you can start your preparation and training even before you land in Canada and you can do this online!

SOPA is a virtual hub providing guidance and customized pre-employment supports designed to help newcomers find and retain employment in Canada. More information here:

Here's a recent video featuring two immigrants who completed SOPA courses before coming to Canada. They talked about their stories - the challenges they faced and how SOPA courses helped them arrived prepared to work in Canada.

The woman in the video is an accountant from the Philippines.  She immigrated to Canada together with her husband and daughter.  I know that for a fact because she is a client of Canadian Immigration Consultancy.
