September was a busy month for Career Edge. We had the privilege of attending many events hosted by our partners in the business community, and explored new ways to achieve our shared mandate of putting diverse, qualified talent to work.
We showed our support at ACCES Employment’s Annual General Meeting, as they celebrated 30 years of helping newcomers successfully integrate into the Canadian job market.

At Treble Victor Group’s Veterans On Bay Streetevent, we made new connections with employers looking to build or strengthen their military recruitment initiatives through our Canadian Armed Forces Reservists’ Paid Internship Program.
We joined RBC as they hosted a recruiting/ networking event where over 80 candidates with disabilities met with RBC recruiters and hiring managers, learned about RBC’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, accommodations and the Pursue your Potential (PyP)program, as well as explored the opportunities available through Career Edge.
At Planning for Canada‘s Consultative Conference, we discussed ways to advance the effectiveness of pre-arrival services for prospective immigrants, with Career Edge internships playing an important role in enabling internationally qualified professionals to secure jobs before, or shortly after arriving in Canada.
Our partnership with Planning for Canada (formerly the Canadian Immigrant Integration Program and Canadian Orientation Abroad) has enabled us to build a solid pipeline to amazing global talent, and support their settlement in various locations across Canada.
