INTERNATIONAL RECRUITMENT, A SUCCESSION OPTION
Hawkesbury, March 13, 2019 – The Employment Services Centre (CSEPR) in collaboration with the Francophone Immigration Support Network of Eastern Ontario and their partners, the United Counties of Prescott and Russell and Contak, Staffing Solutions, invite all local employers to a free information session to discover the possibilities offered by international recruitment. This event will be held in French and in Hawkesbury, on March 26, from 11:45 AM to 3 PM and includes lunch during which the representatives from the Canadian Embassy in France and Romania will present the opportunities offered by international recruitment, along with an overview of support programs available in Ontario.
“This is a unique occasion to learn about the potential of international recruitment and to find out about opportunities to recruit qualified candidates to fill our positions,” said Caroline Arcand, Executive Director for the Employment Services Centre. “In a situation of full employment, but also in the face of an aging population and exodus of our youth, we need to evaluate all the possibilities available to us regarding recruitment. This is certainly the purpose of this information session, and although it is not the only solution, international recruitment certainly offers great opportunities to bring skilled workers to our region,” added Mrs. Arcand. “Indeed, employers present will hear testimonies from immigrant persons who came to settle in Prescott-Russell to pursue their careers, supporting the fact that international recruitment is a very viable solution for our region,” concluded Mrs. Arcand.
The CSEPR invites all businesses and organizations to register for this free activity, held in French, through its website (csepr.ca) or by calling 800.668.5950 or 613.446.4189.
