Program helps foreign-trained engineers find jobs in Calgary

'The outcome of this program was priceless,' says graduate with two job offers

The Calgary Catholic Immigration Society has graduated a new crop of engineers.

The 15 immigrants have qualifications from their home countries, but couldn't find a job in Calgary because they lacked Canadian experience.

One of the new graduates of the upgrading program is Bahar Soleimani, who was an industrial engineer in Iran, but sold furniture after she came to Canada in 2014.
