Become A Canadian could confirm that Canadian jobs are available in Alberta. According to Muhammad Yaseen, Alberta’s minister of immigration and multiculturalism, the province of Alberta is targeting high-level professionals in healthcare.
In his words:
“Our targets include physicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and clinical social workers. The ministry works closely with the healthcare system to ensure we understand needs as we develop this stream.”
“We’re doing whatever we can and making sure that when people come here, when they arrive, they are offered all the necessary training and resources concerning language issues, childcare and other related things.”
“We want to make sure that they are fully helped to move forward within a short period of time to make sure they reach their full potential here in this province,” he concluded.
Become A Canadian highlights essential things from the minister's mandate letter.
Aside from filling the shortages of healthcare workers in rural regions, the Alberta minister has been requested to develop and pass anti-racism legislation. In the second part of the mandate, the minister focuses on multiculturalism and anti-racism.
The minister will also focus on increasing funding for engaging and promoting Alberta’s ethnocultural communities.
Become A Canadian says the mandate letter emphasizes:
- Ensuring access to English as a Second Language (ESL) training for newcomers
- Supporting settlement services for Ukrainian refugees
- Developing legislation that allows people more flexibility to observe cultural holidays more easily while not disadvantaging businesses
