I had excellent experience with NIC Online and it solved my employment related queries quickly and efficiently.

The registration was very quick and easy, and I appreciated the live call I had with the specialist. I was told about so many settlement and employment services that I had not even heard of before coming to Canada. I was most surprised that this is a free service!

This has been the most useful post-arrival service for newcomers like me. I got access to the right information and referrals to some great organizations who can help me further. Very much appreciated.
