With the Waterloo region a hub for innovation and technology, it is no wonder the area is a draw for new immigrants. Connecting those new immigrants to opportunities can be challenging, and in this challenge, the Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural centre saw a great fit for the Connector Program. Officially launched on November 22nd, 2017, the Waterloo Connectors Program is now connecting new immigrants to the business community in the area and having impressive results.
In their first quarter, they have recruited over 30 Connectors and have connected 11 connectees. It’s only a matter of time before this translates to jobs in this community, which means retaining high-skilled community members.
Congratulations to the Waterloo region on the Connector Program, and we look forward to seeing what you accomplish as you grow!
