Employer Council of Champions Summit
The annual Employers’ Summit is a premier event that brings together over 100 business, government and civic leaders in a program designed to engage participants in a dialogue about the effective integration of skilled immigrants into the labour force, and to celebrate employer excellence in Ottawa.
The Summit increases awareness about systemic barriers to the effective integration of skilled immigrants. It also provides valuable information to assist employers in creating policies and practices that will help them access and fully utilize the tremendous skills available in Ottawa’s immigrant talent pool.
The Summit features prominent keynote speakers, expert panel discussions, a learning exchange, networking opportunities and the presentation of the HIO Employer Excellence Awards.
