On July 23, we will be hosting three full-day sessions with individuals from the Matrix and Millennial generations to gather their feedback and insight, and brainstorm creative ideas. The sessions are expected to be fun and fast paced that will keep the participants on their toes.

  • share their experiences and provide insight into their daily lives
  • articulate their thoughts and are not afraid to share their ideas
  • participate in group settings and enjoy engaging in group discussions
  • be creative and generate ideas

The sessions are being held at Surrey Central City July 23. Participants must be available for this full day and be able to organize their own transportation to the session.
How You Can Help
Coast Capital employees, who are 29 and under, are eligible to participate in one of the information sessions. If the above criteria sounds like you and you are interested in taking part, please make sure your manager is ok with you attending, and fill in the application.<https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3NRPKPQ>
Not 16 anymore you say? Not to worry, we need your help identifying hot shots in your family and the community who would be a great candidate. If you know someone who meets the above criteria, please forward them a copy of this email and have them apply<https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3NRPKPQ> to be one of our superstar participants.
The deadline for all applications is Wednesday, July 10. As we only require up to 25 people per session, we will contact all applicants by Tuesday, July 16 to let them know if we can use their help and provide them with the full details of the brainstorming sessions. Staff participating in the sessions will be marked in Kronos as a day worked, and non-staff will receive an honorarium (non-staff) for attending.
Our future is an exciting here at Coast Capital, and I can’t wait to hear how the next generation of up and comers think we can take our organization to a whole new level.

For International Students – Post Grad Work Permit

Some of you have started applying already for the Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP). As before, the main piece of advice that the I-House advisers have for the students is to make sure that your documents are perfectly in order and that you should be well prepared before flagpoling. The I-House advisors encourage students to talk to them before going to the border to get information and get coached on how to communicate with border officers.  Even with the best preparation, the important thing to remember is that in every case, the decision rests with the border officer dealing with that case.

Those students who were hoping to but did not obtain a three year work permit should talk to an advisor at I-House to make sure you prepare well to apply again for a new PGWP for three years. You can do this even while you start to work with the current PGWP.  I-House advises that when you apply, you may wish to write a good cover letter to clearly tell immigration officers about what happened and request a new PGWP to cover  three years. You can request a new letter of completion from the MBA Office.  Students may submit a paper application to Case Processing Center in Vegreville, Alberta. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/work-students.asp
