Leveraging Immigrant Talent in the Labour Force
Insight from Canadian Business Leaders
Free Webinar • May 17, 2022
There are more than one million unfilled jobs in Canada’s labour market. Canada is facing a disconnect between talent supply and demand. Simultaneously, newcomers are experiencing under- or unemployment—individuals who have international education, skills, and experience to contribute.
Immigrants fuel Canada’s labour force growth, and that will only increase in the coming years. In this webinar, business leaders discuss why and how companies benefit when they leverage immigrant talent.
To facilitate the discussion alongside The Conference Board of Canada’s Associate Director of Immigration, Iain Reeve, is the Honourable Anne McLellan and Honourable Lisa Raitt, co-chairs of the Coalition for a Better Future, join forces with Andrew Chunilall (Community Foundations Canada) and Faisal Kazi (Siemens Canada) to share their experience on the transformative impact of immigration on businesses.
The webinar will be of interest to, small- and medium-size business owners, sector council members, private sector and business leaders.
This webinar is hosted by The Conference Board of Canada in partnership with World Education Services (WES), and the Business Council of Canada.
