Work Ready Online Communication Tools
CCLB has created tools for professionals in the employment sector (community and social services sector), HR/recrutement, settlement, and education and training who work with older immigrant workers and immigrants preparing to work in non-regulated skilled or semi-skilled occupations. The communication tools include:
Tools for those working with mature workers.
Tools for those working with immigrants preparing to work in non-regulated skilled or semi-skilled occupations.
The development of the new tools for Work Ready was made possible by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration of Ontario.

Statistics Canada1 identifies language as a significant factor in immigrants not finding employment in Canada, behind foreign credential recognition and a lack of Canadian work experience. This resource has been developed for employers, human resource professionals and employment counselors to facilitate the successful employment of newcomers to Canada. It also provides helpful language-based tips and resources for those in the employment sector employing, working with, or training immigrants.
