Building A Culturally Competent Workplace
The Workplace Culture Program helps Nova Scotia employers by:

  • Raising awareness of the benefits of cross-cultural talents and experience
  • Identifying methods by which the organization can improve its cross-cultural experience
  • Improving the ability to retain immigrant employees

Immigrants entering the workforce are a source of labour market growth. They bring benefits such as innovation, determination, and connections – to potential partners, suppliers and customers. Retaining talented immigrant employees brings competitive advantage and is a key factor in becoming an employer of choice.


Building A Culturally Competent Workplace will increase your capacity in the following:

  • awareness raising
  • stereotypes and how to get beyond them
  • how to understand and benefit with immigrants in the workplace.

Great, need you to come train our employers. Awesome!”
