  • "I arrived in Canada recently and my main aim was to enter my industry of choice. This program was great to understand Canadian environment. It was also great to go ahead with job search and the mock interview is the best practice. The program encourages us to give presentations and improve our communication skills. I really recommend the program to my colleagues and any newcomers." - Muhammad Kazmi.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

After much consideration and time spent closely following the COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak, we have decided to replace all in-person information sessions with online sessions for Humber's newcomer programs until further notice.

Your health & well-being, and that of the community at large, is of the highest importance to us.

Next week, we will provide updates regarding information sessions that can be accessed virtually - instructions will be provided once you register for the session. We encourage all those who are interested to register for the free online information sessions to learn more about OSLT. 

As we all move forward through these changes, we thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

If you have any questions, please send an email to oslt@humber.ca
