Art Rekhtin | Manager, Newcomer Programs
can be a challenge in a new country from learning the language to
finding affordable housing and employment commensurate with skills and
experience, to establishing a new network of social contacts/supports,
to identifying food alternatives if the food you are used to is not
available in the area you settled in Canada. Being an immigrant and
having gone through it all myself, I am fortunate to have an
opportunity, through Caledon Community Services, to pay it forward and make a positive change in the lives of other newcomers.
a professional level, I am a certified Project Management Professional
with extensive experience leading cross-functional teams on digital and
classic projects in Language Assessment & Training, Settlement, and
Employment Services aimed at helping newcomers succeed in Canada. Also, I
am an Ontario Certified English Language Instructor.
I am humbled and thrilled to be part of the Newcomer Programs Team specifically and CCS Team at large.
