The “face” of the Canadian workplace is changing. Labour sources suggest that by 2015, the majority of growth in the Canadian labour pool will be New Canadians and Internationally Trained Professionals.To thrive amidst the impact of this significant change, progressive Canadian businesses are seeking to understand the needs and cultural perspectives of New Canadians and to effectively incorporate Internationally Educated Professionals and New Canadians into their Canadian work forces.
Accordingly, culture training; for individuals, for families, for community and government organizations, and for businesses is essential.
