Minister Chan, GuestSpeaker at 2015 Employer Summit

The Hon. Michael Chan, Ontario Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade, shared some of his own history as a young immigrant working in the basement of a restaurant, and spoke of the competitive edge to be gained from hiring immigrants.

“We are long past the point of hiring newcomers because it’s a nice thing to do,” said Chan. “Employers realize diversity makes sense from the business case alone. They tend to be more entrepreneurial and innovative and add a global advantage to today’s workplace.”
