Start your newcomer pathway to success with CareerAtlas, an innovative AI tool

Published: January 15, 2024

CareerAtlas, funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), is a FREE online tool available to permanent residents, convention refugees, CUAET (Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel) holders and protected persons.

As a newcomer to Canada, embarking on a journey towards (re)settlement can be challenging due to limited or overwhelming information, especially for those leaving established livelihoods.

Many newcomers must start afresh in Canada, facing obstacles such as language barriers, lack of education, limited work experience, or foreign credential recognition, making the establishment of a settlement journey towards a career problematic.  Connecting to appropriate sources of information from an early stage is crucial to navigate this process.

Newcomers often encounter difficulties in finding relevant information online and may lack awareness of available settlement services in Canada. While the time to settle varies among individuals, understanding one’s skill and value is essential to contribute to the Canadian labour market promptly.  Making informed choices is key to ensuring newcomers’ success.
