Toronto-based non-profit organization MicroSkills has redesigned its website at <http://www.microskills.ca>. The organization focuses on skill-building programs for new Canadians, women and youth. The new site, developed by Eden Advertising & Interactive of Toronto, incorporates a cleaner user interface, easier navigation, online videos, a search function and social media features. "Building a highly effective online presence for MicroSkills was very important to all of us at Eden," said Esther Willinger, president of Eden Advertising. "Newcomers to Canada, low-income women and at risk youth endure many challenges. However, developing a web presence that facilitates Microskills' cause and enables their clients to easily access the programs and courses needed to better their lives in the Canadian workforce was a driving motivation for the Eden team and a very meaningful and fulfilling project for all of us who participated in its development."
