Who we are

We are a pre-arrival service that provides an orientation to Canada to economic class immigrants before they land in Canada. We help newcomers gain employment that reflects their skills, credentials and experience so they can be part of the Canadian economy and society soon after their arrival.

Launched in 2007, CIIP is managed by Colleges and Institutes Canada and funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

What we do

We help immigrants prepare for success in Canada by providing the right information, right resources, and right contacts before they arrive.
