Arrive Prepared in Alberta

Arrive Prepared in Alberta

Welcome to the Arrive Prepared Alberta Blog!

Immigrating is one the biggest changes you may face in life. Moving to a new country and adapting to a different culture can be complicated and challenging. In the months, weeks, and days leading up to your departure, you may feel a mix of excitement and uncertainty, with so many questions—where to live, where to send your children to school, and how to integrate, for example. The biggest question for most: How will I find a job in Canada?

We can help!

The Arrive Prepared Alberta blog will feature information about working and living in Canada—answering many of your questions and making your transition an easier one. Before you even arrive you'll feel prepared and confident.

Arrive Prepared Alberta represents SOPA (Settlement Online Pre-Arrival), a Canada-wide network of settlement agencies that provides support for immigrants who are preparing to move. With the help of SOPA's free interactive and informative online courses, and skilled team of counsellors and facilitators, the majority of whom are immigrants themselves, you'll:

  • Learn all about how to find a job in Canada and adapt to Canadian workplace culture, and
  • Connect with regulatory bodies, professional associations, immigrant settlement organizations, employment training programs, and resources.

What clients say about SOPA:

"I didn't know anything about looking for and applying for jobs in Canada. Now I am confident in creating targeted resumes, cover letters, a reference list, a LinkedIn profile and requesting  information interviews."

"I got to learn the differences between working with others in Canada and my home country as well as how to effectively communicate in the Canadian workplace. It was a very wonderful learning experience for me; I feel a lot more confident and look forward to working in Canada.

"It means a lot to me to have all this information before landing in Canada. Learning some skills that are vital in Canadian culture gave me self-confidence."
