(NC) If you’ve recently moved to Canada and are frustrated by a tough job market, you’re not alone. Many newcomers struggle to find similar positions to those they held back home and take on survival gigs to support their families. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to get closer to your dream job. Here are some tips to get started:

Research your field in the local economy: Learning more about your industry in Canada can help you understand the unique challenges and opportunities here, and better position yourself in cover letters and interviews. Plus, it can mean knowing which jobs and skills are most in demand and what competitive salary ranges are.

To get this key info, check out professional association websites, newspaper articles and industry publications. Even expensive insider conferences will post trends and event summaries on their websites.

Update your resume for the Canadian market: Did you know that in most fields, a resume should be a maximum of two pages? This is shorter than the norm in many other countries, so it’s important to keep it brief and focus on your main achievements. Hiring managers like to see how past experiences directly relate to the job you’re applying for, specific examples rather

than generic skills and numbers to quantify your success.

Use informational interviews to network: Informational interviews are popular in Canada, and a great way to get an insider’s perspective from a leader in your field. During an info interview, you’ll be able to have a friendly conversation with them over coffee or virtually and ask questions about their career path, education and more.

Not sure where to find an industry leader to talk to? Contact the CEO or other executives of companies you’re interested in – you’ll be surprised how many are happy to speak with you. Just make sure to keep it casual; this is a long-term networking play, not the time to ask for a job.

Look for a bridging program in your industry: Organizations dedicated to helping newcomers succeed are a great resource that can help you overcome barriers and get your foot in the door. If you’re in the tech sector, check out ComIT, which provides free technology training and help with job skills like resume building and interviewing. The charity was started by an immigrant from Argentina and connects program participants with employers looking for IT professionals.

BCFED welcomes expansion of psychological injury presumption; continues to call for extension to all workers

(Burnaby) Today’s announcement from the BC Ministry of Labour extending presumption to more workers for psychological injury coverage is an important step forward, BCFED President Sussanne Skidmore said today.

“It’s good to see these new occupations join those with fast-tracked claims and timely access to treatment and Workers’ Compensation Board benefits when they suffer a workplace psychological injury,” Skidmore said.

“But as BC’s unions have pointed out, every worker could potentially be exposed to a traumatic event or events and sustain a psychological injury . And there’s no good reason to make them jump through extra hoops to get the support they deserve.”

Under presumption, workers who sustain psychological injuries as a result of work-related trauma don’t have the added burden of proving those injuries were caused by their work; the WCB presumes they were unless the employer proves otherwise. Without presumption, the burden of proof is on the worker.

“Presumptive coverage is a good thing – it helps workers get the treatment they need quickly, and the support they need to return to work,” said BCFED Secretary-Treasurer Hermender Singh Kailley.

“Now let’s take the next step. We urge the government to clear the path for all workers who suffer a workplace psychological injury. Provinces like PEI and Saskatchewan have done this; it’s time BC extended presumptive coverage to all workers.”

Safe and Efficient: A New Point-of-Care Ultrasound Arrives for Chilliwack/ Fraser Rural Care Providers

A first for Chilliwack’s growing health community has been achieved with the purchase of a new point-ofcare ultrasound. The latest technology reflects the process of innovation that is at the core of Fraser Health’s continued focus on transformation and growth. The new mobile, handheld, ultrasound (sonographic assessment of patients-incare) provides several benefits the older model was unable to provide. For instance, the new point-of-care ultrasound can be used while a patient is being transported to the hospital or at a site of trauma enabling safe and efficient portable imaging; whereas the bedside ultrasound was only available in a contained space.

According to family physician and UBC Site Director for Chilliwack Family Medicine Residency Program Dr. Alison Henry the “point of Care Ultrasound is a new modality that will allow family physicians to provide improved bedside care. We are very grateful to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation for purchasing the handheld ultrasounds on behalf of Family Doctors in Chilliwack.”

According to Dr. Jassal, donor relations, “the new ultrasound allows patients-incare to receive non-invasive, real-time imaging capability, and efficient medical assessment

wherever they are located. The root of our funding is to help provide excellence in health care for Fraser Valley residents”. To support projects like this one please contact: Lakhbir. Jassal@fraserhealth.ca or visit fvhcf. ca to learn more.

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by the Fraser Health Authority. They serve the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.

How to land a job in the tech


(NC) As the job market tightens postpandemic and companies look to cut costs, many job seekers are once again finding there’s greater competition for fewer roles. One field that’s bucking the trend and projected to grow? Technology.

According to the Information and Communications Technology Council, Canada’s digital economy employment is forecasted to reach 2.26 million, triggering demand for an additional 250,000 jobs by 2025. So, focusing on the tech industry could be a smart move if you’re looking for work. Even if it isn’t your area of expertise, there are many ways to break into this thriving field. Check out these tips to get started:

Think outside the box. Don’t have an engineering degree or have zero interest in coding? There are plenty of in-demand jobs in the sector that don’t require specialized degrees or knowledge of html. Most tech companies need employees in marketing, sales, customer support, HR, admin and more.

Level up your skills. Keeping up with the latest tools and programs in a con-

stantly evolving field is important. If you have some background in IT, consider taking an online course – many are available for free straight from the software manufacturer or through your local library. If you’re new to tech, look for programs dedicated to helping newcomers to the field. One resource is ComIT, a Canadian non-profit offering job seekers free technology and professional skills training. Through government and partner funding, ComIT offers three-month-long specialized courses for in-demand technology jobs.

Create an online portfolio. Even if you’re a newbie to the industry, you can show off your tech skills and gogetter attitude to a potential employer with a sharp website. Briefly touch on who you are, your transferrable skills, and what you’re looking for in a job. List your achievements, including new certifications and ongoing training. Provide examples of cool projects you’ve completed – at work, school, or in your spare time – that showcase your successes and why you’d be a good hire. Learn more about free tech training at comit.org.

New regulations streamline pathway for international credentials

Internationally educated professionals will soon have a more streamlined, efficient and transparent process to get their credentials recognized in B.C.

"The Premier gave me the task to get the International Credentials Recognition Act across the finish line, and I'm happy to say we've done it,” said Ravi Parmar, Parliamentary Secretary for International Credentials. “For too long, skilled professionals from around the world have come to our province hoping for a better life, only to find roadblocks in their way. But now, with these regulations, we're changing that. It means simpler, fairer rules so these professionals can start working in their fields faster, providing the services our communities need.”

The International Credentials Recognition Act will come into effect on July 1, 2024, after significant consultation with 18 regulatory bodies, led by the parliamentary secretary for international credentials.

The act will require regulatory bodies to reduce red tape and remove barriers in 29 professions and make it easier, more transparent and quicker for those qualified professionals to pursue and achieve credential recognition, no matter where they were trained.

One major change is eliminating the catch-22 of unnecessary Canadian work experience requirements for experienced internationally trained professionals. The catch-22 was that a person needed work experience to work in Canada, but couldn’t work in Canada because of the lack of Canadian work experience.

The professions include engineers, social workers, veterinarians, paramedics, early childhood educators, teachers, biologists, land surveyors, architects and more.

The act will also enhance fairness by requiring regulators under the act to charge similar fees for international and domestic applicants, eliminating

redundant English-language testing requirements. There is also required accountability and transparency to the public through new data collection and reporting requirements, and enforcement tools to ensure compliance with the act.

The Province will be appointing a superintendent of international credential recognition. The superintendent will oversee the fair recognition of international credentials, addressing any systemic or procedural issues. Additionally, they will have the authority under the act to issue orders for compliance and impose administrative penalties as needed.

The superintendent will work with regulators on implementation and compliance for the new regulations.

Quick Facts:

The international credentials recognition Act reflects feedback received through public engagement and consultation with regulatory bodies. The act complements the work being done by the Ministry of Health to create new pathways for health-care workers coming to Canada.

Reasons Why We Celebrate Father's Day

Father’s Day is a time for people to celebrate the men in their lives. For children, it is a day to show appreciation for their fathers and fatherfigures. For adults, it is a day to show much they love and appreciate the hard work of the fathers and husbands in their lives. Although many of us celebrate Father’s Day, we may not know the history behind this tradition. Surprisingly, this holiday was not completely accepted at first. But over time, people embraced the idea of the influence fathers had on their families, especially in their children’s lives.

Why Do We Celebrate Father’s Day?

According to the History Channel, Sonora Smart Dodd, a woman from Spokane, Washington, was the founder of Father’s Day. She was one of six children raised by her widowed father. Her mother had died during the birth of her sixth child. Since Mother’s Day was established in 1908, Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to have an equivalent holiday for fathers. To promote her idea of celebrating fathers for a day, Sonora visited local churches and the YMCA and met with shopkeepers and government officials to gain support for this new tradition. Because of her hard work, Sonora found success when Washington State celebrated the first Father’s Day on June 19, 1910.

Even though Mother’s Day gained momentum right away, it would take years for Father’s Day to be nationally recognized as a holiday. In 1916 and 1924, Presidents Wilson and Calvin Coolidge showed support for Father’s Day. President Coolidge even urged state governments to celebrate this holiday. But it was not until decades later that Father’s Day would be recognized as a national holiday. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a presidential proclamation designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. In 1972, President Nixon finally established a permanent national observance of Father’s Day. One reason it took so long for Father’s Day to become a national holiday was

because of a lack of support among men. Many men felt the holiday traditions of gift-giving and flowers did not celebrate their masculinity. Some also thought it was a way for stores to commercialize another holiday and to pressure families into spending more money by buying unnecessary gifts. In the 1920s and 1930s, a movement actually attempted to eradicate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The movement’s supporters called for replacing those holidays with Parent’s Day, in which both parents are celebrated. Despite the movement’s efforts, Mother’s Day stayed on the calendar, and Father’s Day would eventually be added to the national calendar.

Why Should We Celebrate Father’s Day?

Despite the original controversy surrounding Father’s Day, society has had a growing awareness of the importance of fathers. In the early 1900s, fathers did not receive much credit for the influence they had on their children. In fact, most psychological studies completed on parenting focused their research on mothers. However, in the 1970s, psychologists started recognizing the importance of fathers.

Basically, children who have involved fathers are more likely to be healthy emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Even when children face crises, having an involved father helps children regulate their behavior and feelings better than children whose fathers are absent.

In addition, children who have absent fathers are more likely to engage in at-risk behaviors. This is why there has been a push for male mentors in elementary schools.

While mothers have been recognized as the primary caretakers, times are definitely changing as more women are offered more opportunities in the workplace and fathers are becoming more involved in raising children rather than primarily focusing on providing for the family. Fathers

today work hard to take care of their families by providing for their needs, helping with household chores, and spending time with their children.

But sometimes, our fathers are not around to celebrate. If your father has passed or is alive but absent, or you do not have a husband and children, you can still honor a grandfather or male mentor. Think about another man that has positively influenced your life (such as a teacher, coach, or pastor) to whom you can wish a happy Father’s Day. You can even celebrate a friend or a neighbor who is a dad on Father’s Day.

Sometimes, we do not have positive relationships or views of fatherhood from our earthly fathers. If you suffered abuse or neglect at the hands of your father, spend the day focusing on your heavenly Father Who loves you and is the perfect Father—a Father Who will never hurt you and is always for you.

How Can We Celebrate Father’s Day?

There are a variety of ways we can celebrate our fathers. We can purchase them special gifts, take them to see their favorite baseball team, give them a day to spend on the golf course, or simply buy a card that tells them how awesome they are.

Another way to celebrate Father’s Day is to host a cookout for all the fathers in the family (e.g., brothers, uncles, and grandfathers). If you do not live close to family, you can also host a neighborhood block party to celebrate the fathers in the neighborhood or gather with a few close friends who are fathers.

Oftentimes, we think of mothers as sentimental, but fathers like to hear how much their children love them and why they think their fathers are great. They like to be the superheroes in the story—the ones who save the day and make their children’s and spouse’s lives better.

Weathering the storm: Get your home ready for the summer

(NC) As the warm weather rolls in, so does the potential for extreme weather events. These can bring strong winds, heavy rainfall and even hail, posing significant risks to homes and properties. Don’t let the wet weather put a damper on your spirit this summer. Consider trying out these tips so you can navigate storm season like a pro this year.

Taking the time to secure or bring any outdoor furniture, decorations or objects inside can prevent them from becoming damage-causing projectiles in high winds. Items such as patio umbrellas, lawn chairs, garden decorations and small potted plants are just some of the items that you should bring in.

Overhanging branches and untrimmed trees can be hazardous during extreme weather, potentially causing damage to your home or neighbouring properties if they fall. Trimming back branches that are close to your home or power lines can reduce the risk. Check with your municipality before cutting any tree significantly as that may require a permit. Regular tree-maintenance can help prevent damage year-round. During storms, windows and doors are vulnerable points of entry for wind and rain. Sealing gaps around them can prevent water intrusion and minimize potential water damage. You may also consider installing storm shutters or impactresistant windows to protect against flying debris and

high winds. By reinforcing garage doors, you can help prevent them from collapsing under high wind pressure.

It is also important to have an emergency kit on hand in case the storm lasts longer than expected or does more damage than anticipated. It is suggested that you fill a storage bin or duffel bag with supplies and store it in an area of your home that’s easy to get to, like a hall closet. You can include things like nonperishable food, a can opener, water, solar-powered chargers and or power banks, battery-powered or hand-cranked radios and flashlights, a first-aid kit, medications, extra glasses or contact lenses, copies of your emergency plan, important documents such as insurance papers and identification, cash in small bills as well as seasonal clothing, sturdy footwear and emergency blankets.

If you are impacted by storm damage this summer and you believe that filing a claim with your insurance is necessary, you can start a claim almost instantly either online or via your insurance provider’s app.

Letter to Minister Fraser Regarding BC Floods For Distribution

Minister Fraser,

Since the devastating floods in 2021, British Columbians have been repeatedly let down by the Liberal government. With minimal support from Ottawa, the municipalities of Abbotsford, Merritt, and Princeton have struggled to recover and rebuild in advance of future floods. The Prime Minister assured them that his government ‘would have their back.’ Sadly, after this photo-op announcement, he left town the next day never to think about impacted residents again.

In the over two years since, the municipalities have gone through lengthy and expensive applications for federal funding through the Disaster Mitigation & Adaptation Fund. We were shocked to see that on June 3, their applications were denied.

By denying this application, the government is turning their backs on our region and putting critical national infrastructure at risk.

Preventing future recurrences of the 2021 disaster is critical for the people of British Columbia whose homes and livelihoods are under threat, but also to protect food security and supply chain integrity for the entire country. It cannot be overstated how pivotal this region’s flood resilience is to the economy of British Columbia and all of Canada.

The Liberal government has had over two years to help British Columbians prepare for floods. But rather than work constructively with communities, this government has opted to gatekeep and break promises.

This is yet another example of a government that is all talk and no action. Together with my colleagues representing British Columbians, we are demanding that you as Minister of Housing, Infrastructure, and Communities demonstrate real leadership by telling the big government gatekeepers to get out of the way and reopen applications to ensure a fair deal for British Columbia.

Yours sincerely, Dane Lloyd, Member of Parliament for Sturgeon RiverParkland and Shadow Minister of Emergency Preparedness

How to help make your money grow

(NC) In today’s complicated financial environment, every dollar counts for Canadians. Many may miss the opportunity to maximize their money. The question is: how should Canadians allocate their funds? Should they put it towards personal spending, savings or high-interest debt? What if there was another way to use that money for more financial benefit? Consider investing.

A TD survey found that 47 per cent of Canadians have not made or are not planning to make any contributions to their investments this year. They do not feel confident in their investment knowledge or that they’ll be able to retire by the time they plan to. This financial education gap may cause many to miss out on strengthening their investment portfolios.

Before making big investment decisions, meeting with an advisor or personal banker who can help you navigate your financial needs can be beneficial.

What should you be investing in to optimize your financial future? You may want to consider taking advantage of registered plans available in Canada, including Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs). Whichever you choose, the important thing is to get into an investing habit and stick to it.

Contributing to investments is essential. If you’re interested in starting your investing journey, financial institutions offer a variety of tools and resources, including personal bankers, to help Canadians reach their financial goals.Learn more about personal banking at td.com.

The City of Richmond is also known as the Child of the Fraser. Its Steveston Village and Highway to Heaven (aka #5 Road) are some of the most popular places to visit. Since 2008, the Richmond Museum Society with support from the city has been a very popular Doors Open Program. It involves opening this community’s doors to the public on a weekend in June. So far, more than 250,000 visitors have participated in the Open Doors Program. This annual event highlights this city’s heritage and important civic services. Of particular interest to visitors is the small stretch of #5 Road, popularly known as the Highway to Heaven. A few kilometers of this road have close to 25 places of worship of different denominations. Most of them open their doors to the public on the June weekend. This year again, more than 40 diverse organizations, local businesses, cultural sites and places of worship welcomed visitors on June 8 and 9.

Doors Open in Richmond

At India Cultural Centre of Canada Gurdwara Nanak Niwas, 8600 #5 Road, Richmond, we had many visitors who were welcomed by our young hosts also known as goodwill ambassadors. Most of these youth were students. They were supported and guided by several dedicated adults. These young people did an amazing job in welcoming the visitors from very diverse communities. After a very warm welcome they would explain to them the main highlights of Sikhism, the role of our Gurdwara in serving the community and show them around. Not only that, but they would also answer any questions the visitors had about Sikhism, Punjabi/ South Asian community or the Gurdwara.

As part of this program the Gurdwara management had planned to offer refreshments and langar to the visitors. Most of them enjoyed the delicious langar in the Langar Hall. Some of these visitors had visited our Gurdwara for the first time. They were very impressed with the generosity

of the Sikhs. All of them appreciated learning more about the youngest and the fifth largest religion of the world -Sikhism. They were amazed to learn that Guru Nanak Dev ji, our first Guru and founder of Sikhism spent almost 28 years travelling around the globe more than 500 years ago conveying his message of universal brotherhood, equality, making an honest living, generosity and belief in God Almighty. Before leaving the Gurdwara premises each one of these visitors expressed their sincere thanks and appreciation to the Gurdwara Management for opening its doors to the public at large.

On behalf of the India Cultural Centre of Canada Gurdwara Nanak Niwas Management Committee, I am very thankful to our young guides and their mentors. They include Arjun Singh Bains, Saiya Kaur Sanghera, Sharon Kaur Athwal, Rhea Kaur Bains, Jasleen Kaur Bains, Ranveer Singh Gill, Lovereet Kaur, Gurseerut Kaur, Gurnadar Kaur, Jasmeet Kaur and many others. Also, I would like

to thank their adult mentors including Rajinder Singh Grewal, Jaswant Kaur Johal, Manjit Singh Sekhon and many others. All of them have made our Doors Open experience to be very enjoyable

B.C. supports innovation for a cleaner industrial future

People and communities are benefiting from reduced emissions, cleaner air and more jobs in the clean economy thanks to investments in new, clean technology in local industries.

“The CleanBC Industry Fund is an important tool that accelerates development and use of new, cleaner technologies that help grow our local economy, support a more sustainable future for British Columbians and continue our collective fight against climate change,” said George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. “Clean industry is the future and we are seizing this opportunity to work together with industry and be an international leader in this growing market.”

The CleanBC Industry Fund invests carbon taxes paid by large industries back into clean-technology projects

that reduce emissions and create clean jobs.

“British Columbia is well-positioned to lead the next global wave of innovation, development and commercialization in clean transportation,” said Josie Osborne, Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation.

“Today’s CleanBC Industry Fund recipients are wonderful examples of local industries taking action to reduce emissions, while creating new clean jobs for people.”

This year, the CleanBC Industry Fund is providing a total of $32.6 million to 12 large industry projects to help reduce emissions through clean technology. Applications are open for the fifth intake of projects.

Lafarge Canada is receiving more than $7 million to add additional infrastructure to allow increased co-processing of alternative fuels,

reducing the use of fossil fuels at the Richmond Cement Plant. This builds on a $5-million contribution to Lafarge in 2023 to support the use of captured carbon dioxide.

“Industries play a critical role in addressing climate change and protecting the environment for future generations,” said Brad Kohl, president and CEO, Lafarge Canada, Western Canada. “We are committed to pursuing initiatives to decarbonize across our operations and are eager to see the advancements made by other recipients of the CleanBC Industry Fund.”

The City of Vancouver will receive more than $6 million to capture more methane and reduce fugitive methane emissions at its Vancouver landfill. This is estimated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 716,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) by 2033, and

builds on continued work through the CleanBC Industry Fund to collect and re-use landfill gas at the facility.

“We are excited to receive this funding, which gives us the opportunity to lead the way in making our landfills more sustainable by reducing methane emissions,” said Ken Sim, mayor of Vancouver. “Only by working together can we take this important step to protect our environment.”

Since 2019, more than $244 million has been invested back into industry, reducing more than nine million tonnes of emissions over 10 years, the same as removing almost 240,000 cars from the road each year during that time.

The Government of B.C. continues to work with industrial operators to deliver on commitments through the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030.
