IEC-BC believes that the successful integration of skilled newcomers into the BC labour force is critical both to their success and the province’s long-term economic prosperity. BC companies today operate in an extremely competitive environment provincially, nationally and internationally. New Canadians help BC businesses stay competitive by bringing in global perspectives and connections. With its low population growth, BC can’t sustain its economic performance without an infusion of the unique talents of skilled immigrants.
We help increase the awareness of the value immigrants bring to our workplaces, communities and economy. By championing innovative solutions, offering state-of-the-art resources, and creating effective synergies among employers, industry and business associations, and federal and provincial government we enable BC businesses to maximize their workforce potential.
