Programs

The Western Connector Program is the first of the National Connector programs to be run in a rural region.

The Connector Program matches community and business leaders (Connectors) with skilled newcomers, local and international graduates, and other qualified local professional (Connectees) in their industry of expertise.

Connectors are local business and community leaders who have a strong network. They can often be found making introductions within social, cultural, professional and economic circles.

Connectees are job ready newcomers & local and international graduates or underemployed skilled locals who are actively looking to launch their career in the Western Region. They are highly skilled individuals, proficient in English and/or French, legally entitled to work in Canada, and a graduate of a post-secondary program.

This informal networking program is as simple as having a cup of coffee and a chat, and then Connectors share local contacts with the Connectee that they can also get in touch with. These introductions help Connectees build their professional network, increasing their chances of finding meaningful employment in the Western Region.
