We are thrilled to extend an invitation to you and your organization to our upcoming in-person launch event for our much-anticipated “Employer Toolkit for Hiring Newcomers” held at Loyalist College’s Accelerate space in downtown Belleville. This event promises to be an insightful gathering that will pave the way for enhanced collaboration and understanding of integrating newcomers into the Quinte region labour market.
Quinte Immigration Services is a non-profit settlement agency that has been assisting immigrants and refugees in the Quinte Region since 1986. Funded by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario, QUIS offers a large variety of services to newcomers who have arrived in Canada. QUIS runs the Quinte Skills Training Employment Program, a sister project to the Employer Toolkit for Hiring Newcomers in which newcomers receive hard and soft skills training and are matched with regional employers.
The Quinte Local Immigration Partnership (QLIP), a program of QUIS, is a collaborative initiative that unites employers, nonprofits, governments and regional stakeholders to make our region welcoming for newcomers, leverage their skills for community strength, and aid employers in hiring and retaining valuable newcomers. QLIP supports the Employer Toolkit for Hiring Newcomers.
Refreshments: Light refreshments and drinks will be provided!
Parking: Downtown paid parking, Riverside and Pinnacle Street lots are in close proximity ($1.00 per hour)
Our Employer Toolkit is designed to support employers to streamline and optimize the process of hiring newcomers, ensuring their smooth integration into the workforce. By participating in this in-person launch, you will gain firsthand insights into the toolkit’s functionalities, strategies, and best practices for hiring and supporting newcomers within your organization. Likewise, we’re excited to get feedback from you about your experiences and strategies working with newcomers.
· Bring awareness to the intersections of immigration and the labour market: We will explore the comprehensive features of the Toolkit and understand how it can benefit your organization in hiring and retaining newcomer talent in the Quinte region.
· Collect valuable feedback: Your input is crucial! We aim to gather data from all of your diverse perspectives to guide the development of more tangible recommendations for the Toolkit, and ones that adapt to the dynamic landscape of immigration in the Quinte region.
· Networking opportunities: Connect with fellow employers, industry leaders, and experts in the economic development field. Share experiences, exchange ideas, and build valuable relationships that can contribute to the success of your organization!
