CCTT Participates on ACCC’s Canadian Immigrant Integration Project (CIIP) Advisory Board
On July 5th, 2012, Director of Communications, Rick Tachuk represented CCTT at the semi-annual Advisory Board meeting for the Canadian Immigrant Integration Project. The CIIP Project (http://ciip.accc.ca ) is an innovative program that aids immigrant integration for foreign skilled workers (FSW) who are in the process of immigrating to Canada. This 5-year pilot project is funded by the Government of Canada and managed by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). The project is designed to help immigrants under the Federal Skilled Worker Program prepare for integration to the Canadian labour market while they are still in their country of origin completing final immigration requirements. CCTT is partnered with CIIP through its Canadian Technology Immigration Network (CTIN) initiative which assists internationally trained technology professionals with credential assessment and preparation for certification in Canada.
