Workplace & Immigrant Network (WIN)

The Workplace & Immigrant Network (WIN) is our new initiative focused on establishing a centralized network that brings together immigrant jobseekers, and local employers in the Waterloo Region.

At WIN, our primary goal is to improve immigrant-employer connections in the Waterloo Region. Through this initiative, we offer tailored support to both immigrant jobseekers and employers within the region. For jobseekers, we provide assistance in navigating the Ontario job market, along with identifying and accessing necessary tools for a successful employment journey. For employers, we provide resources and support to enhance their strategies for recruiting and retaining global talent.

Our support for immigrant jobseekers includes a wide range of services:

  • Connect with leading employers
  • Guide individuals thorugh industry-specific requirements for a career shifts
  • Host informative learning workshops to support jobseekers in the market
  • Organize networking events to connect employers and jobseekers
  • Offer referrals to training and other supports

Similarly, we work with employers to provide these:

  • Connect employers with skilled immigrant talent
  • Audit and pilot shifts to company processes
  • Conduct training workshops to support best practices
  • Arrange networking events
  • Direct referrals to other best fit employment organizations if we cannot provide the service

Our aim is to cultivate thriving workplaces that are enriched by the diverse skillsets of immigrants.

Happy people working.
