ASET Technology Alberta Spring 2016 - 7

FE ATURE The unique challenges immigrants face when looking for work, and one agency providing resources to help them. L iving in a prosperous country like Canada, we can sometimes take the opportunities available to us for granted. So as we meet technologists and technicians coming to Alberta in search for a better life, we can learn a lot from the challenges they face when immigrating, and some of the services that support them throughout their transition. "The number one reason many of our participants want to move to Canada is a better life for their families, specifically their children," states Laurie Hauer, Manager of Employment, Bridging & Training Programs at the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers (EMCN). "Whether they come to us as political refugees, or as an independent skills-based worker, they all do the research when choosing to come to our province." To support immigrants as they come to Alberta, the EMCN offers the Engineers' and Technologists' Integration Program (ETIP) in partnership with ASET, NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) and Alberta Human Services. The goal of the full-time program is to assist internationally-educated engineering professionals to rapidly and effectively integrate into the Alberta engineering workplace. With immigrants coming from countries like the Philippines, India, Romania, the Ukraine, Nigeria, Eritrea and more recently, Syria, the range of technical education and experience varies greatly.
