Applauding innovation and rewarding excellence

Open call for submissions for Immigrant Success awards

In the current tight labour market, employers need to seriously consider candidates from every possible source, especially Canada’s immigrants.

It is vital for them to match these educated and skilled individuals to jobs that take advantage of what immigrants have to offer.

To achieve this goal, employers need to be creative and leave traditional recruiting initiatives behind. Employers can learn by sharing which initiatives worked and which ones didn’t.

To facilitate this learning process, the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) is issuing an open invitation to employers to submit their case for being recognized as a “best employer” of immigrants.

The Immigrant Success awards will recognize proven achievement and innovation in hiring and integrating skilled immigrants into the workplace.

Exemplary employers will be profiled by the awards’ media partners, The Toronto Star and Canadian HR Reporter, and trees will be planted in the winners’ companies’ honour.

The awards are open to all organization in the GTA. Entries must be received no later than March 17. For more information, visit or call 416-944-2627, ext. 239.
