This is an excellent article and there is so much truth in your words. Finding the people that have a good trade certificate but graduated in foreign country usually not recognized in the Canadian Labour Market. One has to go back to College to obtain Canadian journeyman ticket to be able to work in any trade. I had to retrain too in order to find suitable job with my skills. Often times this can be challenging because of the language barrier.

Thank you for bringing this subject in your blog.

Best Regards,
Zuzanna
