Workforce Innovation and Inclusion Project: Partners

With strategic partnerships in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia, we created national dialogue around innovation to increase capacity building in the settlement sector and beyond.

We engaged over 100 partners in our work — service provider agencies, not-for-profit organizations, employers, and industry associations — to develop solutions that address newcomers’ skills and employment needs as well as employer needs.

Our partners acted as project hubs, helped us test innovative pilots, participated in research activities, cross-sector collaboration and knowledge dissemination, and provided input on how to measure success in service delivery.

As Steering Committee members, judges, panelists and volunteers on pilot projects as well as interviewees in our research, our partners provided critical feedback and support to gauge the gaps and barriers in the sector.
