A Special Tech Town Hall on Canada’s Strategy to Attract the Worlds Best Talent and Strengthen our Diversity
Toronto, ON – June 12, 2017
OneEleven is hosting a special Tech Town Hall with The Honorable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship and Rodger Cuzner, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour to discuss the government’s strategy to facilitate new investment in Canada, create jobs, and attract top talent to scale up and position the country as a global innovation leader through strengthened diversity. Learn how the government plans to help high-growth Canadian technology firms by making it easier and faster to attract and acquire the global talent they need to compete on the world stage.
Canada is already home to one of the best-educated workforces in the world, but in an increasingly competitive global economy, more needs to be done to ensure that Canadians can learn, adapt and have good jobs throughout their working lives. This is Canada’s time. The floor will be open to audience questions on how this initiative will help high-growth Canadian companies attract the specialized global talent they need to innovate and grow.
