About FAST Seniors Care

The FAST (Facilitating Access to Skilled Talent) Program helps immigrants to launch their careers in Canada through self-paced, online employment preparation and competency assessment tools developed in partnership with Canadian employers. 

FAST runs across six sector streams: skilled trades, IT and data services, culinary arts, biotech and life sciences, accounting and finance, and seniors' care.

FAST Seniors Care

FAST Seniors Care, the program’s latest iteration, was developed in partnership with BC Care Providers Association. It serves as a bridge between B.C. employers who need skilled talent and immigrants seeking to start their careers in the seniors’ care and living sector. 

If you are a pre-approved or landed immigrant to Canada, with two years of work experience and/or relevant training in the seniors’ care sector, start to leverage your previous work experience and education today – it’s free. 

If you are an employer looking for experienced, skilled talent who are already pre-assessed and qualified to work in Canada, click here to connect to FAST talent!

IEC-BC has partnered with BC Care Providers Association and its operating arm EngAge BC, and InSite to develop and deliver the program’s seniors’ care and living stream.
