Welcome Home to Canada
Presented by TD Bank Group
The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 continues its tradition of welcoming newcomers to Canada
Since June 2004, the program has helped more than 140 newcomers from 50 countries gain significant Canadian work experience and enhance their employment opportunities.
Over 70% of all WHTC participants obtain meaningful employment or further their education after successfully completing the program.

future in Canada.
