Formerly known as Alberta Global Talent, the EMPLOYMENT service of Care for Newcomers Opens Doors to Employment Training, Mentoring, and Opportunities for Newcomers.

Care for Newcomers bridges the gap between the needs of newcomers and employers, creating a welcoming, inclusive, and beneficial relationship for a healthy, competitive Central Alberta economy.
