Saskatchewan supporting recruitment in Ireland

REGINA The government of Saskatchewan and employers throughout the province will embark on a labour recruitment mission to Ireland in March. Immigration staff will support employers at career fairs in Dublin (March 3 to 4) and Cork (March 7) where more than 9,000 candidates in fields such as trades and construction, engineering and health sciences are expected to attend. The Irish Economic and Social Research Institute estimates 75,000 Irish are expected to emigrate in 2012 as unemployment in the country continues to rise. Twenty-two employers have committed to participating in the mission, with more than 275 vacancies on offer.
