Course description

[Free for a Limited Time]

The purpose of this program is to provide small and medium size businesses with the knowledge and tools to be able to access and hire qualified immigrant employees. The intent of these webinars is to help employers who are hiring, or thinking about hiring, immigrant talent. This course is not about how to navigate the Temporary Foreign Worker and Provincial Nominee Programs, instead the focus is on hiring qualified, skilled immigrant people who are already right here in BC.

Developed in partnership with IEC-BC

Businesses that attract, integrate, develop, and retain international talent benefit from an expanded knowledge and skills base. The key outcome of these short, topical webinars is to support employers to successfully overcome challenges in sourcing, hiring and on-boarding immigrant talent.

[Your subscription includes access to this course for 3 months]
