Looking for work in the tech sector can be daunting, especially if you are a newcomer, refugee, or part of an equity-seeking group in Canada. Once you land that dream job, the journey doesn’t stop there – thriving in your new role is just as crucial.
To address this, CMHA’s Mental Health Works, in partnership with Lighthouse Labs, is excited to offer “Strategies for promoting mental wellness” training.
This training is available at no cost to eligible applicants thanks to the ICT Boost initiative – a program funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program (SWSP).
These workshops aim not only to assist you in securing a job in the tech sector but also to flourish once you are there.
