The RAC for immigrants program was specifically designed for immigrants who have experience working in transportation and logistics and who are having difficulties integrating into the Quebec workforce. The program’s objective is to help candidates gain an official, Canadian recognition of their competencies and to allow them to benefit from seminars that will help them integrate the transportation and logistics workforce in Quebec.
Measures for success:
The program, inspiring itself from the Recognition of Acquired competencies for individuals, lasts 21 weeks, at approximately 25 hours per week. For the first 17 of those weeks, the candidates are doing in-class activities, attending seminars, and doing in-class evaluations and for the last 4 weeks, they are in an internship.
Champlain College’s program’s objective is to update the candidate’s knowledge in the transportation and logistics domain while paying particular attention to the context in which workers in transportation and logistics evolve in Quebec (ex: customs procedures, geography, Quebec and Canadian rules and regulations, seminars on the integration to the Quebec culture and workforce). Furthermore, since communication in French and English is important to work in the field for transportation and logistics, the candidates will receive additional training hours for communication in French and English related to the topic of the week in transportation and logistics. The candidates also benefit from assistance for resume writing, cover letter writing, job interview, and job search.
