Meet your employment match in Northern Ontario.
The International and Community Matchmaker is a project of Northern Policy Institute.
The program offers employability and entrepreneurship services for potential immigrants and secondary migrants, and employers seeking sources of skilled workers.
The program is designed to help northern and rural communities build a skilled workforce and fill recognized labour shortages by helping immigrants and secondary migrants secure firm job offers. Securing a job offer expedites the permanent residency process helping newcomers to achieve citizenship. Overall, attracting migrants to rural communities has a number of important social and economic benefits. Skilled workers require housing, services and products, which will provide broader benefits, including job creation, to the community.
This project was made possible through partnerships with the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce, City of Greater Sudbury Economic Development, FedNor, Workforce Planning for Sudbury & Manitoulin, Northern Policy Institute
