Canada invests over $10.5M to La Cité, CICan to deliver pre-arrival services for newcomers


Collège La Cité and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) will receive over $10.5M from the Government of Canada to provide pre-arrival services for newcomers to the country. This funding will support the two organizations’ ongoing efforts to deliver online and in-person services abroad to new immigrants before they come to Canada. This includes services that supply information about the Canadian workplace, foster soft-skills development, provide employment counselling, and support newcomers connect to their new communities. “I am delighted that La Cité can actively contribute to the socio-economic integration of French-speaking immigrants,” said La Cité President Lise Bourgeois.
