It is truly inspiring to empower and support those who re‑imagine their lives to seek a better life in Canada while uprooting and resettling their families.

Why partner with Global Skillz
Global Skillz will get you connected with a significant (and often un-engaged) segment of Ottawa’s population – newcomers looking to settle into their new life, home, career and community.
If you’ve been in business 5 years or less and are not seeing the results you’d hoped for, then we can help you.
“Hustle and Scale”

Hosted by Global Skillz, the 12-hour bootcamp is all about taking your business or idea to the next level and building it on a solid foundation for success.

“I don’t have words to express my sense of gratitude for the difference that the Newcomers Job Fair made to my life! I met my first mentor through the event and I am still, to this date, receiving support from her on a continuing basis.”
“I’ve been very blessed to have received the support and guidance from your side. As someone who lost her professional certifications when she moved to Canada, I was really struggling in my efforts to find a suitable job. Through you, I was able to land my first professional engagement in my field of choice and that has given me a really good foothold in my sector. Thank you!”
“Your commitment, support and help was top notch!!!! We would definitely come back to the Newcomer Job Fair to hire for our team. We recruited two key positions this year, and we will be back again next year”
