Are you a rural employer facing worker shortages and wanting to learn more about hiring and retaining newcomer employees in your workplace? Prairie Skies Integration Network, one of our partners, is hosting a free forum on February 9th for employers across South Central Saskatchewan. Several industry experts will join the discussion, exploring the opportunities and challenges involved in welcoming and retaining newcomer employees, and ways to overcome some of the unique barriers involved in developing a more diverse workforce. This is a hybrid event, so you are welcome to join in-person at the Heritage Inn Hotel & Conference Centre or virtually via Zoom. Learn more and register here.
Prairie Skies Integration Network is Moose Jaw region's Local Immigration Partnership (LIP). LIPs are systems that have been set up in regions across Canada that invite communities to engage in integrating newcomers. Prairie Skies is made up of partnerships with diverse community representatives of various types, including employers, school boards, health centres and networks, levels of government, professional associations, ethnocultural organizations, faith-based organizations, the community and social services sectors, established community members, and, of course, “newcomer representatives”, themselves. We are proud to partner with them in the work they do to make our region a more welcoming and inclusive place for newcomers to Canada!
