Hiring newcomers as either temporary or permanent workers has many benefits to not only an organization, but to the health of the community's economy. In fact, newcomers are often the answer to several labour issues facing several communities. Benefits can include:

  • International experience
  • New language skills that can expand market reach
  • Qualifications & training that may not be available in this region
  • Innovative approaches
  • Attitudes and experiences that cultivate a diverse workforce
  • Loyalty & strong work ethic
  • Global networks (business, political and personal)

This section will provide you with the tools and resources needed to learn more about hiring newcomers and what processes are in place. If you have any questions of concerns, feel free to contact the North Bay & District Multicultural Centre for further information.
