Canada Readiness Tool launched for immigrant IT professionals

the CanadaVisa Team - 03 January, 2010

Last week, the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) launched another way to help Information Technology professionals successfully integrate into the Canadian workforce, called the Canada Readiness Tool (CRT).

The Canada Readiness Tool is a bilingual self-assessment program that educates foreign-trained IT professionals about what the ICTC calls the three C’s for success in a Canadian workplace: Culture, Communication and Competencies.

"The Canada Readiness Tool is the first tool of its kind developed to meet the needs of the ICT workforce in Canada. Through our innovative Immigration Initiatives that include programs, resources, and tools such as the Canada Readiness Tool, ICTC is paving the way towards helping global ICT talent integrate successfully into the Canadian ICT sector," said Paul D. Swinwood, President of ICTC.

The CRT was funded by the Government of Canada’s Foreign Credential Recognition Program and it was developed with feedback from IT professionals in India, China, the Philippines and Canada. It also offers guides on the Canadian IT labour market, interview techniques and résumé preparation.
