ESPC Social Justice Intern Report Now Available
The Role of Stakeholders in Integrating Skilled Immigrants Into the Workforce
This summer, Daniel Muthui, a fourth-year Bachelor of Arts student at King's
University College in Edmonton, served as the Edmonton Social Planning
Council's first Social Justice Intern. In this volunteer position, Mr. Muthui wrote a
paper discussing employment barriers that recent immigrants face when they
immigrate to Canada, programs and initiatives that are being used to address
the problem in Alberta, and additional recommendations for government and
employers to help new immigrants successfully integrate into the workforce.
This initiative was supported by Volunteer Alberta's Serving Communities
Internship Program. This program aims to improve the organizational capacity of
non-profit organizations in Alberta and to encourage post-secondary students to
become more engaged with our province's non-profit sector.
Mr. Muthui's report is available here. For more information about the report
