The North Bay Employers' Council
This group of local employers identify and steer programs aimed to resolve regional labour market needs. In North Bay, labour force realities include: high number of retirements, an aging population with low birth rates, and a reliance on newcomers to meet the organizational human resource needs. For more information, or to get involved in the Employers' Council, contact: Meg Ramore at email@example.com.

The Business Immigration Attraction Program
Thinking about succession planning or selling your business? This program was developed in 2010 to attract new Canadians to Northern Ontario. The program is funded by the Ministry of Citizenship & Immigration and operates through a partnership between the City of North Bay and the City of Greater Sudbury. The Program is an Internet-based referral program with a focus on targeting and attracting business immigrants to the North Bay and Sudbury regions. This tool will serve as an ideal match-making system to connect local business owners looking to sell with business immigrants looking to buy.
