New website aims to connect immigrants with employers in Toronto
Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) launched a the Professional Immigrant Networks website last month to help connect immigrants with jobs. Financed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada as well as Scotiabank, the networking site will connect various groups of skilled immigrant workers with Greater Toronto Area firms.
Racquel Sevilla, TRIEC's program development manager, says the new Professional Immigrant Networks website is a way for employers to seek out a broader talent pool. It will help raise awareness of immigrants offering different types of professional skills, and will collaborate with the numerous immigrant networks in the Toronto area already doing the same work along industry and cultural lines
