Thank you very much! The Webinar was very informative and helpful.

Was very happy with the services provided. The representative not only provided the information that has been asked but also guided, directed and handheld us to the relevant procedures and formalities. Thank you once again.

Newcomer Information Centre Online is a wonderful organization to be part of for newcomers. Thanks to Mona Ali for her everlasting support and assistance in preparing the resume as per Canadian standards. Highly recommended for all professional newcomers.

An excellent resource for gaining information on how to network, write cover letters and resumes for jobs for newcomers to Canada. Selina was very helpful and provided very insightful feedback on my resume! She also suggested several other resources that would be helpful for me. A big thanks to NIC Online and Selina!
