Skills for Change

Skills for Change (SfC), established in 1982, is a not-for-profit organization located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that has pioneered programs for internationally trained professionals seeking employment in their field.

SfC specializes in the development and delivery of sector-specific employment preparation programs for highly skilled new immigrants. Through mentoring, professional partnerships, and skills, technology, language and career training, it supports and eases the labour market integration of skilled immigrants in a variety of professions.

Working in partnership with private sector companies, professional organizations, the provincial government, and new immigrants, SfC creates targeted training and mentoring opportunities that support and promote the labour market integration of skilled immigrants in a variety of professions.

The Skills for Change programs have had great success in supporting highly skilled and educated immigrant professionals in finding permanent employment directly related to their training, and in linking employers to an underutilized source of talent.
