Together we advance an inclusive and thriving Canada.


MOSAIC enriches communities through services and advocacy furthering the success and sense of belonging of newcomers and individuals from diverse backgrounds.

MOSAIC has more than 40 years of experience working with visible minority newcomer women. Through their programs, clients have updated their skills, obtained or updated required certification and credentials, learned occupation specific language skills, discovered new careers, and gained understanding of the local labour market. MOSAIC’s experience in delivering employment services include providing programs through federal funding (e.g. Career Paths, Workplace Connections Mentoring, and Canadian Professional Work Experience Pilot for Women programs) and provincial funding (e.g. Career Paths, Fast Track to Manufacturing and WorkBC).

MOSAIC project will be using Model 1: Milestones to Employment and they will target VMNW with a background and/or interest in work as a Health Care Aide (HCA) but who are unable to re-enter/enter this career in “traditional” ways. Their target group will consist of about fifty women who will participate in the program with no comparison group.

Participants will complete one month of in-class training, be placed in a paid entry-level position in a seniors care facilities, and receive three months of post placement support. The evaluation of this intervention is a small-scale proof-of-concept study.
