Increasing Employability for New Canadians

Qing came to Canada with a successful history of working in foreign investment and teaching Chinese to American teachers in China. Discouraged because her English language skills prevented her providing translation and assistance to seniors in Canada, she joined the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers (TIOW) program. Through training offered in this funded program, Qing applied to Conestoga’s English Language Studies and is currently attending class at the Doon campus.

Qing Mi increased her employability skills and is thankful TIOW was able to "teach an old dog new tricks."
