Connecting Employers to Newcomers

Home BlogConnecting Employers to Newcomers

Immigration to Canada has boomed, accounting for nearly 100% of Canada’s labour force growth in recent years. Our government has also pledged to welcome up to 500,000 immigrants to Canada each year between now and 2025. This is an opportunity for employers – business owners, people leaders, HR personnel – and anyone else who is feeling the burden of our nation-wide labour shortages.

If you’re an employer, you may be thinking… I see this opportunity… Now, where do I go from here? How can I recruit from this new talent pool? Well, as your local Immigrant Employment Council, we can help. We’ve been working with employers within small to medium-sized organizations to design a new service that will help navigate through the complexity of the immigrant employment system. We can help you connect to newcomer talent.

The Employer & Resource Navigation Service is here for you!

We’ve learned that many employers don’t know how to connect with new Canadians and newcomers. Many find the immigrant employment system confusing. So, we’re piloting a FREE service to:

  • make connections between newcomer job seekers and employers (via several immigrant settlement services)
  • support local employers to attract, hire and retain newcomer talent
  • promote available grants and resources, and
  • help employers create more inclusive recruitment processes and work environments

Jamie Miller, Employer & Resource Navigator, will get to know employers on a 1-on-1 basis to customize services for each.

Jamie brings over 15 years of experience engaging stakeholders in community collaboration through various social impact roles in Niagara. With two degrees in business (one of which focused on International Business), Jamie understands the complexity of doing business in an increasingly globalized world. As an active citizen of Niagara for many years, she is also intimately aware of the specific challenges and opportunities that our community faces.
