Facing a dearth of talent in the Maritimes, the Halifax Partnership introduced The Connector Program, an initiative that aims to recruit and retain top talent from across Canada’s east coast and beyond. The Connector Program matches job-seekers with employers, bolstering Halifax’s workforce and boosting its economic competitiveness. Launched in 2009, this unique program enables employers to explore exceptional talent and helps new talent build professional networks by connecting them with establishment members of the community, including business and government leaders.

The results have been outstanding. The Connector Program has helped over 500 international students, immigrants, and recent graduates find employment in Halifax. As a result of its success, The Connector Program has been replicated in 20 communities across Canada and has won global appraisal from the International Economic Development Council. So could these results be replicated in your own community?

Join us for this special webinar with the Halifax Partnership to learn more about The Connector Program, and how you may be able to imitate its success!
