Welcome to the Accreditation Assistance Access Centre Website
The Accreditation Assistance Access Centre (AAAC) for Internationally Trained Professionals and Trades People is an Employment Assistance Service, sponsored by Social Enterprise for Canada. It is an Employment Ontario program funded in part by the Government of Canada and Social Enterprise for Canada.
This service opened in 2003, and by January 2007 our statistics show that over 4,000 newcomers and unemployed specialists have benefited by visiting our Centres.
The AAAC is known for Information and Accreditation Planning, and excellent one-on-one service. It is important that people visit us as they become landed immigrants in Canada. You can reach us in Toronto at our Scarborough location, or in York Region, Ontario.
Our service is mobile. Appointments can be booked at the Welcome Centre Immigrant Services located in Vaughan, at JVS in Markham, Ontario, and at several other locations including Brampton.
We urge you to explore this website and learn how our clients receive special one-on-one advisement as to how they may obtain their professional recognition in Canada. This service is free.
AAAC can assist you with the development of your Accreditation Portfolio and custom Action Plans. We can connect you to many other services, and advise you on Accreditation for Employment, Licensing and Certification, Training, Job Search, and employment supports within the community. We will provide you with Information on Regulatory and non-regulatory professions, skills and credentials.
Our facilitators will answer your many questions, and will give you a status report which will outline the steps you must take in short and long term planning for individual goals.
Read our testimonial feedback under Clients section. Our planning will help you focus on what is needed for you individually which will help you move forward.
AAAC is pleased to provide service to those internationally trained professionals and Trades People who are newly arrived or have been here for 3 years or less. Included are those who are working part-time less than an average of 20 hours per week; and who are actively seeking full time employment, or who are in receipt of a notice of imminent lay off, or who must leave their current occupation due to medical reasons. In the case of persons with disabilities, who are unable to work full time, and are actively seeking increased employment, we will help you navigate through the credential accreditation process.
Our services are in English, but our facilitators speak many languages. Ontario Works clients have access to free interpreters, as do clients booking through the Welcome Centre location.
