Connecting employers to immigrant talent for economic prosperity.

Our speaker on Thursday September 7, 2017, Nelida Forero from Immploy spoke about a solution to today's shortage of skilled workers that will only get worse.  The good news is that untapped talent is already here.  Most Canadian immigrants have professional training, making them an asset to companies and their communities, bridging the gap between the labour market demand and the limited supply.

Immploy links employers to effective tools and resources for recruiting, hiring, and retaining skilled immigrants.  Employing international talent today will build stronger businesses and stronger communities for tomorrow.  That's why hiring immigrants is the right thing to do - it makes for good business.

Immploy provides 2 basic services: 

  1. Job Matching:  Connecting immigrant talent with local businesses seeking skilled employees
  2. Mentoring:  Matching volunteer mentors with an immigrant in their field.
