Description


The Toronto East Quadrant Local Immigration Partnership (TEQ LIP) in collaboration with various community partners is pleased to present: Immigrant Employment T.O. Day 2019!

The Immigrant Employment T.O. Day initiative is designed to inform Canadian newcomers with the latest labour market trends and provide a professional forum for newcomers to engage and network with Canadian employers. This event serves to increase partnerships and foster connections among stakeholders within the public, private and the community. This event is an excellent community development opportunity for service providers, employers, immigrants and local businesses to contribute to the meaningful economic success of Canadian newcomers.

Join us as we celebrate this year's theme! The Future of Work: Looking Forward & Beyond Newcomer Employment. With the rise of AI and technology, the workplace culture is more dynamic than it has been. And, newcomers will need to learn how to position and maximize opportunities to enter this ever-changing labour market. Toronto is home to hundreds of small tech start-ups and this provides an extraordinary opportunity for Newcomers to enter the workforce.
