One of the most important factors to the continued success of Distress Centre is our community partnerships. With the help of these partners we’re able to provide compassionate, accessible crisis support 24 hours a day.
Through our standing partnership with the Office Administration Program at CIWA, we provide a three month work placement opportunity for their clients who are high functioning, foreign-trained administrative professionals. We mentor the participant’s integration into the Canadian workplace, and after they successfully complete the three months we provide them with an evaluation and a letter of reference.
The International Talent Acquisition Centre (In-TAC) Pre-Arrival Services project connects Canadian businesses to international talent within Canada and overseas, to help them grow and compete globally.
We partner with Immigrant Services Calgary and In-TAC by providing a work placement opportunity for their internationally educated professionals. We mentor the participant and provide them with an evaluation and a letter of reference at the end of the placement period.
We’re strengthening the capacity of Calgary’s nonprofit sector through our partnerships.
The support of our impact partners allows us to ensure that everyone is heard.Donate
