National Connector Program

The National Connector Program is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the birthplace of the initial Connector Program. This program provides communities with a turn-key solution that increases talent retention through the process of networking. Currently based in 35 communities and growing, the National Connector Program is a successful model to help retain talent, engage employers, and create a more welcoming community.

Matching immigrants with local connectors to help build networks and create opportunities.

The Connector Program is a simple yet highly effective networking program that puts immigrants directly in touch with local business people, civil servants and community leaders – people who are in the habit of making introductions and connecting others to opportunities.

Everyone benefits

  • Immigrants gain professional contacts and meaningful employment
  • Businesses connect with pre-qualified, skilled labour
