Employment and Labour Market Integration
what is it?

- explore employment supports for internationally-trained professionals and to identify gaps within these programs

- identify available employment support services and gaps from the perspective of seniors, LGBTQ, people with mental and physical disabilities and other vulnerable groups.
Our findings are presented in this report.
