A number of programs exist to facilitate the integration of newly settled immigrants into Nova Scotia’s society. The government has also recognised the need to support francophone immigration and is providing resources to that effect. For the past two years it has funded a unique program which is delivered at the Halifax Campus of Université Sainte-Anne. The program is aimed at Francophone immigrants and combines classroom instruction to upgrade language skills, computer skills, occupational health and safety training, and job hunting skills. The program also provides for a work-term of 12 weeks in a local business, government agency, or not for profit organisation. Depending on the job, a wage subsidy can be available.
