New website to help immigrant professionals seek Toronto jobs
As reported by IT Business, a new website with the goal of linking up immigrants with jobs will be launching, says the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC). Financed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada as well as Scotiabank, the networking site will highlight already-existing groups of skilled immigrants, and present them to Greater Toronto Area (GTA) firms.
Located at NetworksForImmigrants.ca, the new website is a way for employers to seek out a broader talent pool, says Racquel Sevilla, who is TRIEC’s program development manager. Raising awareness of immigrants offering professional skills, the website will collaborate with the numerous immigrant networks in the GTA already doing the same work along industry and cultural lines.
