Together with Truro & Colchester Partnership for Economic Prosperity and ISANS, we invited local employers to come together to learn how small businesses are successfully recruiting and retaining international skilled workers to compliment their current workforce.

We were fortunate to have the Nova Scotia
Office of Immigration in attendance to speak to the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program. As well, we were pleased to have local business owners, who are designated employers through the program, present and willing to share their experiences of the process, and the rewards it has provided to them.
