For most jobs in Timmins, you must speak French or English. For some jobs, you need to speak both. There are organizations that offer training in English and French as a Second Language.
Visit College Boreal to find out where you can learn French as a Second Language.
As a newcomer, you likely have no Canadian work experience. A great way to meet this requirement is to volunteer in your chosen field. Volunteering lets you gain local work experience while practicing your English language skills, and can sometimes lead to paid employment.
