Newcomers to Ontario

People immigrating to Ontario are a major source of new skills and talent in the labour market. Workers coming into the province from other nations will become even more important in the years ahead. As an inclusive employer, the Ontario Public Service is committed to capitalizing on the skills and talents that newcomers bring with them to this province and eliminating barriers to employment that include how we attract and hire new talent. We promote a healthy, supportive, respectful and safe work environment for our diverse workforce to develop to its full potential.

Consider joining a vibrant workforce that reflects the citizens who make up Ontario, where your diversity of strengths, experiences and perspectives help us to deliver quality public service.

If you are a newcomer looking for information about the Ontario labour market, building a career in Ontario, credential assessments, bridging programs for internationally trained individuals and other information and resources, go to Employment Ontario and the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration’s website.

An internship program for Internationally Trained Professionals to gain experience within the OPS is also available to newcomers with a minimum of three years of international work experience. The OPS is recognized for its leadership with the success of this program. To learn more go to OPS Internship Program for Internationally Trained Individuals (ITIs).

Also available is an internship program for Internationally Trained Engineers. Candidates must have been screened through Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), the regulatory body for engineers in Ontario, to ascertain that they qualify by satisfying technical/educational requirements for licensing except for the 12-months of Canadian experience. The internship provides engineering experience, in placements of 12 to 15 months. Candidates will be hired for positions that are compatible with their academic discipline, so they may meet PEO’s licence requirements and become licensed engineers at the end of the internship period. Please note that it is the responsibility of the applicant to demonstrate that the engineering experience requirements as outlined by PEO have been met to the satisfaction of the association.
