Build Your Business Network

Are you new to Canada and looking for work?

The Connector Program is a simple yet highly effective networking program that puts immigrants directly in touch with local business people, civil servants and community leaders who volunteer as Connectors – people who are in the habit of making introductions and connecting others to opportunities.

Through one-on-one meetings with several Connectors who work in your field you will:

  • Learn about the local job market
  • Enhance your networking skills
  • Build a professional network
  • Improve your job search

How do I qualify?

Below are the common qualifications for most Connector Programs (please contact a program near you for specific program qualifications):

  • Hold a valid work permit and have immigrated to Canada within the last five years
  • Currently living in Canada with the intent to work and stay in Canada
  • Have sufficient English or French language capability to be employable and to be functional to work in Canada

There are 12 Connector Communities across Canada with more to come. For more information on the Connector Program, contact a program in your area today! >>
