Collège Boréal continues to support internationally trained immigrants

College Boreal LogoThe economic integration of newcomers cannot wait. As we continue to practice physical distancing and await the reopening of the economy, Collège Boréal continues its efforts to support internationally trained immigrants, who are often more affected by economic downturns, to integrate professionally.

That is the objective of the college’s bridging programs. Three new sessions are starting as of June 1, 2020. Designed to help internationally trained French-speaking professionals, the bridging programs teach participants how to adapt their education and their skills to Ontario’s labour markets.

These results-oriented programs with a solid track record as pathways to employment have attracted over 200 professionals across three fields of expertise: management and leadership, health system navigation, and supply chain and logistics.

This year, the programs will take place exclusively online, using videoconferencing to connect participants to each other and with their teachers!

“These unique circumstances we are all facing have made us rethink the delivery model of our programs this year,” said Ammar Boulecane, Acting Chief of Programs and Services. “Since we already have extensive experience offering distance learning, we were able to transition online quickly while still providing the close class dynamics that are so important.”

Collège Boréal’s bridging programs play a vital role in accelerating socio-economic integration. Participants follow bilingual courses to reinforce their technical training, receive career counselling, and pursue internships that provide Canadian experience. They also receive a certificate from a well-respected institution–a mark of quality that is recognized by employers.

“The bridging program team is engaged, always available to help and has a knack for adapting to students’ needs … my experience with Collège Boréal was excellent. And I would absolutely recommend the program,” confirmed Soufiane Ettarak, who participated in the 2nd year of the Supply Chain and Logistics program.
