Immigrant Supports

Adult Language and Learning (A.L.L.) provides support and assistance for immigrant newcomers in Chatham-Kent, including language instruction, ESL classes, and pre-employment programs.

Immigrants to Canada may need to take some steps before entering the workforce:

  • Obtaining a Social Insurance Number (SIN): In order to work in Canada, all temporary residents, permanent residents, and citizens must hold a SIN. The application process should be a priority for all newcomers before they begin their job search.
  • Language Evaluation: If English is not your first language, you might be eligible for language instruction programs.  
  • Accreditation: Having your educational and professional credentials recognized in Canada will help you in your search for a job.

Access Centre's Internationally Trained Worker Loan Program (Loan Program) is a flexible line of credit to assist with covering the direct and indirect costs related to foreign credential recognition. The loan may also help with other expenses related to help achieve employment that reflects international education, skills and experience.
