Labour Market Working Group

One of the local priorities highlighted in the Settlement Strategy and Action Plan 2020-2022 is Labour Market Access & Connections. The Labour Market Working Group is comprised of newcomer-serving agencies, and other local supports. Starting in 2018, the working group has planned an annual initiative to support this employment priority - Newcomer Employment Week/Semaine pour L'Emploi des Nouveaux Arrivants (NEW/SENA).

However, due to COVID-19, NEW/SENA 2020 could not occur. In an effort to continue to support Newcomers’ Labour Market Access & Connections, the working group has created a newsletter for employers. The Newcomer Workforce: An Employer Resource highlights programs and resources that support the hiring and retention of diverse workers. The first edition of our newsletter is available here.
