Ashton College is proud to be a part of this conference and to help BC’s immigrants make the transition into Canada’s job market.
Each year highly educated and skilled immigrants come to Canada only to find that their degrees and credentials are not recognized. For some, this means turning to part-time or low paying work just to get by. Unfortunately, the process of working in the same field as your degree can mean years more of education and many thousands of dollars.
At Ashton we recognize the struggles that new immigrants face when entering the Canadian job market. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue their dream careers. We offer rewarding career options that can help you stay in your chosen field and even help others in similar situations.
