NEWS & EVENTS
CFN delivers Cultural Competency Training sessions across the city of Calgary. The training is interactive and incorporates the questions and areas of focus of the audience. Newcomer populations in Calgary and surrounding area, (who are they, history, demographic trends, etc) current issues related to this population (including geopolitical, health, emergent needs, etc), best practices as service provided to immigrants, refugees and ethnocultural minorities and more are often discussed.
CFN & WINDMILL
Paying for training, exams and licensing can be very expensive. Even immigrants who are fortunate enough to have savings can struggle to pay for what they need to complete their processes successfully.
Luckily, thanks to the support of the CFN hundreds of immigrants are being referred to Windmill Microlending, a registered charity offering up to $15,000 in low-interest microloans to help skilled immigrants and refugees achieve professional success in Canada.
Funded by the Prince's Trust, supported by RBC and KPMG, with Marriott Hotels as our employer partner, CFN is pleased to once again offer the Get Into Work Experience program. The program is geared towards youth ages 18 to 30 years old, experiencing barriers to enter the labour market, with no or limited work experience.
