  • Every 2 weeks (at minimum), there is a LIVE call on a Wednesday with Canadian Immigration Coach, Kristina McPherson, to get to know where you are on your immigration journey and coach you on the right immigration path towards your goals and a general Q&A session.


  • Monthly, Career Coach, Michael Kaiser hosts a hands-on resume webinar to review and comment on your resume and provide guidance on crafting the perfect resume after you have gone through the Canadianize your Resume course, available for free to all club members.

  • Michael's "Canadianize" your Resume course is your first step to landing a Canadian job, especially if you are trying to job hunt outside of Canada or as a visitor to Canada. A good resume is one of the most important steps to landing the right job, not just any job, the right one. Do not underestimate the volume of people applying to jobs in Canada and your need and ability to stick out and not be just another plain old resume. You will get expert advice and guidance backed up with the resume course at the end,where you get Michael and Kristina live to polish it up. Take advantage of this; even if resume writing is a task you dread, it will be worth it. CLICK HERE TO START LESSON 1
