One of the ways the PINs program builds the capacity of professional immigrant associations is by fostering collaboration. We do this by:

  • Supporting  a community of leaders and partners to share skills and information about employment resources and opportunities
  • Encouraging partnerships and building relationships between PINs associations, partners and other interested stakeholders
  • Developing and testing collaborative pilot programs, projects and events with employers and partner organizations
