In recognition of the current demand for skilled professionals in northern BC communities IEC-BC developed and implemented a campaign and website to connect skilled new Canadians, living in Metro Vancouver, with jobs in three northern communities – Prince George, Prince Rupert and Fort St. John.
Thirteen individuals and organizations making a difference in helping skilled new Canadians integrate into BC workplaces were honoured at the inaugural IEC-BC Leadership Recognition Awards event held on April 9, 2015.
The awards recognized the innovation, leadership and commitment of IEC-BC partners, employers, professional member organizations and immigrant serving organizations in advancing the employment of skilled immigrants in BC.
