How You Can Use to Improve Managing Immigrant Talent

By Stephanie Saunders, Maytree

With the start of the New Year, it is a good time to review what was most popular on and how you can use these resources to improve your work for the coming year.

The most popular part of our website is the Roadmap – a step-by-step guide with comprehensive strategies and tools to recruit, retain and integrate skilled immigrants. The Roadmap is well read because, while a fantastic introduction to managing immigrant talent, many municipalities and other key stakeholders have embedded it in their websites. Learn moreon how you can do this here and improve your organization’s management of skilled immigrant talent.

With the many changes to Canada’s immigration policies over the past year, it was understandable that our immigration policy webinar and a related article were also visited by many. We will keep you up to date with news and reports on these policy changes throughout the year.

The core of hireimmigrants, success stories of organizations across the country, was a hit. The City of Montreal, Providence Health Care and two Best Employers for New Canadians award winners, NTT Data and Telus, were featured for their internship and mentoring programs. This tells us that not only do you want to hear how others are doing it, but that you might also want us to break those stories down into more how-to articles on the site.

A new way to connect with immigrant talent, the professional immigrant networks webinar, was also popular, and the TRIEC videos effectively portraying the immigrant and employer experiences in Finding Talent and Integrating Talent were highly viewed.

We encourage you to continue to visit these pages so you can better recruit, integrate and retain skilled immigrants. Stay tuned for new and innovative ideas, stories and resources for 2013 from!
