Call for Expressions of Interest

World Education Services (WES) is launching an opportunity for communities across Canada to leverage support from WES and expert partners and to join a growing network of communities working to create locally driven workforce development solutions to mobilize employers and foster immigrant inclusion.

#ImmigrantsWork is a community engagement initiative that seeks to activate local employers and facilitate the co-creation of practical and easy-to-implement community-driven solutions to address the barriers that local businesses face when seeking to hire and retain immigrant talent. The initiative will be co-led by local stakeholders together with WES.
WES is issuing a call for Expressions of Interest (EoI) to identify up to five new communities and Community Partner organizations interested in creating, evaluating, or expanding employer engagement initiatives to address the challenge of immigrant inclusion in the workforce.  Selected Community Partners will become part of a 2023–2024 #ImmigrantsWork program. Each will have the opportunity to access customized training, coaching, and technical assistance (TA) to advance their work.
