Employer Champions

Employer Champions are Hire Immigrants partners. These companies are considered by Hire Immigrants to be at the forefront of a movement to tap into the talents of skilled immigrants.

They have identified, encouraged and supported participation in solution-oriented initiatives such as mentoring, internships, public awareness campaigns and award programs. These partners have been able to inform the discussion around the advantages of hiring skilled immigrants with other local stakeholders including government, regulatory bodies and universities.
