Is your organization actively recruiting? Is it committed to a workplace of diversity and inclusion? The TallSky team has been informed about a very exciting upcoming employment event in Victoria, BC. Employers, and newcomers and immigrants to Canada are invited to attend a new kind of “career fair” that offers an opportunity to build relationships, to participate in facilitated discussion, and to share experiences and address barriers and misconceptions. It’s a chance to create meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities together!

Newcomers and immigrants to Canada are the future of the Canadian labour force, bringing advanced education, global versatility, adaptability, multilingualism, and a drive to succeed. The goal is to personally connect prospective employers and employees, to break down barriers, address misconceptions, discover one another’s assets and build relationships that lead to meaningful and sustainable employment in our community. The EOE is open to all newcomers and immigrants to Canada and to actively recruiting employers interested in growing their intercultural competencies and learning how to support a workplace of inclusion and diversity.

The Employment Opportunity Exchange will be held on May 22nd in Victoria, BC.

Over 100 newcomer job seekers are expected in the morning session (80 have already signed up), and the afternoon career fair is open to the public, so an additional 100+ future employees are expected to join the afternoon session. There is still space for a few more employers to register before May 10th (final registration date). 

If you are an employer who would like to find out more about the Employment Opportunity Exchange and how your company can play a role, or to RSVP, contact: Fiona Bramble | Founder/President, Here Magazine
