LIENS (Linking Economic Immigration to our Successes) is a project initiated by RDÉE Prince Edward Island (Canada). The project’s goals are to:

• Prepare newcomers for the workforce and help them with their job search;

• Raise awareness among PEI employers about the importance and value of hiring francophone immigrants;

• Offer newcomers a first Canadian work experience and facilitate their integration into the workforce;

• Establish professional relationships between francophone immigrant entrepreneurs and experienced PEI entrepreneurs and offer one-on-one business coaching.


(Francophone newcomers’ assistance centre)

The LIENS project, the Coopérative d’intégration francophone de l’Î.-P.-É.(CIF) and RDÉE PEI are partners of this new centre, which offers a host of services to francophone immigrants, whether they are temporary residents, permanent residents or international students.

The CANA offers office space (computers, Internet access, telephone) and various employment search tools.

At the CANA, you may also access:

  • Settlement assistance services (general information and orientation, housing search, school registration, registration for government services, social integration activities, matchings, community connections, etc.)
  • Employment and entrepreneurship services (preparation and job search, training, information workshops, internships, mentoring, integration into the workplace).
