Master the art of Canadian workplace communication and improve your career prospects

Every country has its own unique workplace culture – including Canada. What might be common in one region could be inappropriate in others. Want to learn how to thrive in the Canadian workplace? The Chang School’s Workplace Communication in Canada (WCC) Bridge Training Program is designed to help internationally trained immigrants (ITIs) integrate into any local work environment, stress-free.

As the workforce becomes increasingly diverse, intercultural communication skills are more important than ever. The four courses in this program will help you understand cultural differences in communication and how to deal with common client-related situations, boosting your business savvy and productivity. Our curriculum focuses on projects and presentations to familiarize you with real-life common Canadian workplace scenarios.

You can complete the program online in as little as four months. When you successfully finish the course series, you will receive a Professional Development Award (PDA) from The Chang School.

This course series features training in:

  • Personal skills, including:
    • showing initiative
    • demonstrating integrity and ethical behaviour
    • remaining motivated
    • maintaining a positive attitude
  • Professional communication skills, including:
    • effective listening and speaking
    • interviewing
