dc.description.abstract Immigrants have been recruited to Canada for their societal and economic importance. Yet it is well documented that skilled workers encounter many barriers re-entering their internationally trained fields in Canada. Among others, the communication and cultural barriers, although recognized as major ones, have more often been mentioned than studied in depth. A case study has been designed to explore this topic from the re-entry experiences of six immigrant professionals in three different fields: engineering, medicine, and banking. This study also examined the professional language re-socialization support provided by a new type of higher-level, occupational specific language training program (Enhanced Language Training) in the three mentioned professional fields. en_US
