Are you an employer who is facing recruitment challenges?  The Immigration Employer Support Program can help. 

The program helps small, medium and large size businesses learn how they can hire skilled workers from abroad. It provides employers with information on the opportunities and benefits of hiring immigrants and how they can begin the process.

Partnership staff will meet one-on-one with anyone involved in hiring including business owners, CEO's, human resources professionals, recruitment personnel and managers. 

In 2011/12,  85 employers were educated on the immigration process through one-on-one visits and six multi-sector information sessions.   Read more about this year's results.

"We're currently considering a role for someone from out of the country. Your comprehensive charts on our options for getting them into Canada were extremely enlightening. Congratulations on this excellent support for employers!"

"Our meeting with Margie Casallas regarding the Immigration Employer Support Program was very informative. Her presentation "Why hire skilled immigrants?" was very relevant to our upcoming requirements. Margie brought along two program consultants from Service Canada who provided us with insight into the process of hiring foreign workers in Canada. It was certainly a worthwhile visit."
