With two program streams – job seeker and employer – it’s a win-win for everyone involved.

Learning in the Flow of Work

The food and beverage industry is facing a tight labour market and skills challenge.

Our present and future workers will come from across many sectors and industries. How do we tap into this potential while filling vacant positions and maintaining food safety?

Succeeding at Work Employer Stream has created a master list of 29+ courses and will create a custom branded learning institute for your organization.

New hires, recent hires and existing workers will enjoy access to online courses and earn nationally recognized certificates while they continue their employment.

No downtime. No lost production. No cost to you!

“Learning experiences are like journeys. The journey starts where the learning is now, and ends where the learner is more successful. The end of the journey isn’t knowing more, it’s doing more.”

Julie Dirksen

“Across Canada, industry members from all sectors have said the same thing. We need a more permanent solution to the workforce shortage we face today."

“The SAW program will provide technical training within the Agri-foods sector equivalent to a trade or associate degree. $ 25,000 in free certifications is very significant. It will help elevate the skills of the labour supply while providing a broad understanding of the needs within the Agri-foods sector.”

“This project will provide future food processing sector employees with the tools, personnel development and work philosophy to excel in secure growth positions in the food processing industry. SAW will fill a need for workers providing them with close to $25,000 worth of training and skills in a dedicated, short term, full-time seven-week program. Partnering business will then benefit from opportunities to introduce these skilled and motivated workers to their work environment with three weeks of paid employment. After that the sky is the limit!”

“I am a Biotechnology graduate and a new Permanent Resident of Canada. I come from India. Having the Canadian certification from FPSC helped me in showing relevant, local and recent skills making me more attractive for future employers. With all this help I was able to land a job in Peterborough, Ontario in July. I feel really lucky to have the opportunity to be able to complete such an extensive course funded completely by the Canadian government and to have the complete support of FPSC to help me find employment in Canada. I am very grateful for their services and would highly recommend any new resident to Canada to learn more to increase their chances of employment in the vast food processing industry in Canada. No matter which field you belong to, this course can help you find transferable skills for employment.”

"CCIS is very excited to launch the program.
