Join us to learn more about hiring displaced talent to solve your talent shortage.

About this event

Canada is short on skilled talent, while skilled refugees are looking to leverage their skills and move internationally to secure their futures. The Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP), a program of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, allows organizations to hire top talent from forcibly displaced populations and provide individuals with an opportunity to contribute to and build a new life in Canada.

Talent Beyond Boundaries (TBB) and Jumpstart Refugee Talent, presented by TECHNATION Canada, will share how Canadian employers can hire from the 40,000+ skilled refugees in TBB’s Talent Catalog. As well, they will speak to how employers can leverage existing EMPP resources to make the hiring process seamless.

Angela joined TECHNATION with over 25 years of exceptional global and Canadian experience in the Technology sector driving transformational programs. Most recently, Angela has spearheaded a partnership with Talent Beyond Boundaries. “TECHNATION is honoured to support this important initiative, alongside Canada’s commitments to support the immigration of refugees from around the world,” said Angela Mondou, President and CEO, TECHNATION. “My own experience working in the Canadian military in war-zones, forever changed my view as to why Canada must continue to step up and lend a helping hand. The need for skilled tech talent in Canada is real, and this partnership with TBB is another important way we can make a difference, helping both employers, and job seekers.”
