The Multicultural Centre of the Yukon (MCY) launched the Yukon Connector Program (YCP) in 2015, a networking initiative to help immigrants expand their professional networks in hopes of securing employment in their industry.
YCP matches immigrants (Connectees) with community leaders who volunteer as connectors. Once a match is made the connector meets with the Connectee to give them an understanding of how their profession works in the Yukon and what opportunities may be available. Each connector also commits to providing referrals to the Connectee.
YCP promotes the creation of a basic business network for each Connectee and it is a great way for businesses to see what talent is new to the market. Our clients — with backgrounds in IT, finance, health care, and so on — find this program very valuable.
YCP is a great way to help immigrants find relevant and meaningful employment.
