The North Shore Immigrant Inclusion Partnership (NSIIP) is conducting a survey of North Shore employers. We are entering an important period of economic recovery and re-building following the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this period of growth will not benefit all workers equally; research shows that recent immigrants will experience disproportionately larger challenges in seeking labour market re-attachment in the post-COVID-19 economy. At the same time, there are growing opportunities for employers to build meaningful and mutually beneficial connections with skilled immigrants.
NSIIP is conducting this survey to:
- Understand North Shore labour market trends in the COVID-19 economic recovery context and
- Identify strategies to attract and retain immigrant talent that contributes positively to economic growth
The information collected through this survey will play a vital role in identifying promising practices for integrating recent immigrants into the local labour market, with a particular emphasis on workforce rebuilding in the context of aggressive COVID-19 recovery strategies. Our goal is to improve your ability to successfully hire and retain immigrant talent and contribute to building a more diverse & inclusive North Shore workforce.
