New Immigrant Society

Helping newly arrived Canadians achieve their career goals through learning scholarships, mentor-ship and connections.

 
 
 

 

 

Our Mission

Launchpad exists to help new immigrants regain their professional credentials here in Canada. It is our goal to help break the cycle of poverty often found with highly skilled workers who, due to the complexities of immigration and cross boarder certifications, find themselves trapped in low paying jobs and lacking the resources to change their situation. Through a combination of learning scholarships, professional mentoring and providing connections, we help new arrivals achieve their best Canadian life.

September 2019

I don’t think I ever would have made it to being a Lawyer in Canada. A low paying day job, night school, English training plus two young kids... the goal seemed to be getting farther away, not closer. A Launchpad scholarship allowed me to focus on one thing - finishing my Canadian training.

I write the bar in three months.

I am so happy.
