Canadian small-to-medium enterprises represent 54.2% of the gross domestic product (Conference Board Canada, 2018) and are experiencing a worker shortage (BDC, 2018) exacerbated by the pandemic (LMIC, 2020) despite available workers: immigrants (BDC, 2018). Workplace onboarding, employee attraction, hiring and skills training programs adapted to immigrants may improve this situation, particularly for companies in non-gateway locations.

Learning Outcomes:
  • To identify the common challenges and needs of immigrant workers
  • To outline effective immigrant onboarding strategies that improve retention
  • To identify effective immigrant onboarding in non-gateway locations
