Help develop microcredentials that support newcomer success in Canadian workplaces.

The microcredentials will focus on Communications, Collaboration, and Adaptability, three of the skills identified by Government of Canada’s Skills for Success framework.

This working group is part of Skills Enhancement for Newcomers, a two-year national initiative that will help newcomers develop the soft skills unique to Canadian workplaces, enhancing their employment profiles.
