Work has the power to change lives and strengthen communities.
Everyone’s journey to finding work is different and for many in our community facing barriers, it can be very challenging.
- Your donations provide training, mental health and individual support to people facing barriers to work. You can give monthly or give a one time gift.
- Helping someone find and maintain work can lead to financial stability, improved self-worth and confidence, social connections and a path out of poverty that can impact family members and the community around them.
Felix arrived in Canada with years of manufacturing experience and knowledge, having built a successful career in management, engineering and lean processing roles for electronic, automotive and telecommunication manufacturers.
Despite his knowledge and experience Felix had difficulty securing work in the same field. Like so many newcomers Felix had to learn to “survive in a country where you don’t know anything or anyone, have only your savings and are forced to take the first job you can get to pay bills and help your family survive”. This meant working in jobs with minimal skill level to simply make ends meet.
In order to keep moving forward, you need to adapt to change and be willing to learn.
