A number of programs exist to facilitate the integration of newly settled immigrants into Nova Scotia’s society. The government has also recognized the need to support francophone immigration and is providing resources to that effect.
For the past three years it has funded a unique program which is delivered at the Halifax Campus of Université Sainte-Anne. The program combines classroom instruction to upgrade language skills, computer skills, occupational health and safety training, and job hunting skills. The program also provides for a work-term of 10 weeks in a local business, government agency, or not for profit organisation. A wage subsidy of 50% is available to employers who want to provide a suitable work experience.
