Private Partners join Federal Internship for Newcomers Program
Minister Jason Kenney recently announced that CGI Group Inc., a leading provider of information technology and business process services, and CIBC, a leading Canadian-based financial institution, will be partnering up with CIC to hire newcomers through the Federal Internship for Newcomers (FIN) Program.
The FIN Program is a Citizenship and Immigration –led initiative that gives newcomers to Canada the opportunity to gain valuable temporary work experience. Through the FIN Program, CIC will provide CGI and CIBC access to newcomers who have been screened for employment readiness to fill temporary and permanent position in their companies.
Minister Jason Kenney believes that this program is an excellent example of the federal government’s leadership role in helping immigrants enter the Canadian workforce.
