Career Resources

Getting a high-quality education is just one of the many steps new immigrants need to take in order to succeed in your new life in Canada.

To help, we’ve prepared a list of organizations that offer valuable information, advice, and services for internationally educated professionals. They can help address issues such as gaining educational and work experience in Canada, qualifying for professional licensing and registration, finding a job, and English language assessment and training.

Please note: This list doesn’t include every possible organization that might be able to help you – and Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education does not take any responsibility for the information, advice, and services these organizations provide.
