To help employers hire, retain and promote newcomers to Canada, an alliance of Toronto-area businesses and community organizations has launched a new website called hireimmigrants.ca.

The website will feature the workplace practices used by companies that stand out for their ability to integrate the foreign-trained workforce.

It’s part of a number of initiatives by the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) to boost the integration of immigrants in the workforce. TRIEC is a multi-stakeholder body representing employers, unions, occupational regulatory bodies, post-secondary institutions, assessment service providers, community organizations, and the three levels of government.
