An Open Letter to Our Employers, Clients, Partners, Sponsors and Friends, from the Board Chair and CEO

It is a time for change for all of us, and Success Skills Centre is announcing that it is changing its not-for-profit operations to a social enterprise. We are taking this step because governments have less funding available to immigrant settlement services
in Manitoba.

Our board of directors and staff see this as an exciting opportunity for profit and not-for-profit organizations to work together in a different way to address social issues. The Centre will continue to work with its various stakeholders, and in the new model strive
to cover its operational expenses and to develop new markets.

Since 1985, our Centre’s dedicated and experienced staff has developed and delivered niche programs and services focusing on the following twin goals:

The Centre’s service model is designed to save immigrants precious time, money and grief, and to help accelerate their process into the workforce in a timely manner. Doing so is critical, based on our long experience and is demonstrated in much research. Not utilizing immigrants’ skills sets is a tremendous loss of human resources and to the economy.

Over the next while, our board and staff will be reaching out to our various stakeholders to share how they may be able to support our new direction. Please watch our website for further news.

Testimonals from Clients

“When I first heard of Success Skills Centre, I did not imagine the immerse impact it will have on my career.  From the great reception at the front desk to the excellent support system from all the Labour Specialists, the overall system in place is wonderful. 
I have learnt new and efficient way of presenting my résumé, cover letter, reference and all other supporting document needed for my job search.
I discovered the importance of soft skills, because this was not emphasized in my cultural background, it’s a new terrain in which I am beginning to explore by applying to volunteer in various service groups.
I also got to meet with people from diverse culture learning from them has been a pleasant experience for me, I have learnt to appreciate beauty in diversity.
In all, Success Skills Centre has made me a better person, I appreciate your effort in assisting immigrants, especially in understanding Canadian work environment.”


Employer’s comments: “I wanted to give you the great news (if you haven’t heard already) – we have offered an accounting position to Esther and she has accepted!  She is starting officially on Monday and we are very excited to have her.  Thank you again – I look forward to working with you in the future!”


“When I came to SSC, it was difficult for me to narrow down or tailor my skills to a particular specialization and industry.  The information I gathered throughout the session helped me to understand my skills and the kind of entry level job I should be looking for.  More so, I have stronger understanding of my soft skills and how I can use them.”


“I would like to say a big thank you for the organizers of the two week training at SSC.  The program has been so enlightening and explosive.  The program was well organized and impactful with loads of information that will channel one’s path to great lines. I learnt a lot during this program and I believe the sky is my limit.
I am very optimistic that with the information I got from SSC. I would be able to get my dream job.  Finally I would encourage the staff or SSC to keep up the good job.”


“I really appreciate the input of Success Skills Centre in organizing the Hands-On-Practicum session for immigrants.  It accorded me the platform to obtain a mentorship in jump-starting my career in Canada.  I believe I have been equipped with the requisite skills to be successful on my job search interview and then job.”


“I just want to say thank you Success Skills Centre for this opportunity to get to training which changed my mind and opened my eyes.  When I landed here in Canada everybody was saying that to go back to my career it is not possible.  But as I know from this two-week workshop, it will be up to me.  All is possible with our counsellor I will make it happen.”
