The City of Vancouver was our first employer partner, and now it is having a very special anniversary! Since 2011, over 115 City of Vancouver mentors and connectors have helped skilled immigrants expand their professional networks, learn about the Canadian context of their profession, and connect to job opportunities.
We believe there are a few key reasons for the success of this partnership:
- First and foremost, it aligns with the City of Vancouver mission and its commitment to diversity.
- There is full commitment from the top, and mentoring is embedded as a core leadership development opportunity within the organization.
- And finally, the City of Vancouver is always looking for ways to improve this program for both the newcomers to Canada and their staff.
Together, we have made a difference. We look forward to an ongoing partnership with the City of Vancouver so that collectively we continue to help employers tap into the immigrant talent pool and help newcomers to BC integrate into the province’s labour market. Congratulations and a sincere Thank You!
