On 15 November 2015, the Multicultural Helping House Society (MHHS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA). As part of the Society’s mandate to help newcomers integrate in Canada, this agreement aims to increase opportunities for immigrants in the construction industry.
Opportunities within the construction industry include: construction workers, architects, engineers, lawyers, office workers etc. BCCA is connected to over 2500 constructions companies within BC. The aim is to assess the newcomer’s education, skills and interests before connecting them to the right path of education or employment of their choice. In addition, newcomers will have the resources to learn and familiarize themselves with the rules and regulations that govern the Canadian construction industry.
This is a no-fee service for the applicant. It is funded by the Government of Canada (CIC).
