Mission Statement

Skills for Change provides learning and training opportunities for immigrants and refugees to fully participate in the workplace and wider community.

Join us on June 5 for our annual fundraising gala, Pioneers for Change -- a fantastic evening that will change the way you look at Canada and Canadians. You will experience first-hand the stories of our honourees, told in word and film. You will also be part of the making of a flim that will bring the stories and the short films together into an unforgettable documentary.

Can't make it out on June 5th? You still have a part to play. Your donation will support our innovative programs and initiatives and help us support new Pioneers for Change. You can make your donations in honour of a specific individual, and we will forward your donation message to the individual in a gift card.


Skills for Change is a charitable organization dedicated to employment success for immigrants and refugees. A focus on professional communications, workplace culture, skills upgrading and bridging, mentoring and language classes directly responds to the needs of hiring managers from Canada’s leading employers.

With a successful background in social innovation, Cheryl May, Executive Director, saw an emerging trend in government interest for increased innovation and collaboration from nonprofits to be responsive to market shifts and less dependent on public funding. Skills for Change launched an innovation program in January 2012 to test and push out new sustainable solutions in support and services.

With an emphasis on strategic analysis, the approach weighs demographic and employer needs, adapting to the changing demands of the immigration landscape.
