Hire Smart is a series of workshops available to employers promoting and providing strategies for immigrant recruitment and retention. Contact us today for more information.

The Immigrant-led Working Group brings together local immigrants to advocate for improved labour market outcomes for newcomers and enhanced public awareness of the economic, social and cultural contributions immigrants bring to Kingston and the region.
