The 2021 Liaison Tour starts tomorrow!

The Liaison Tour hosts two major events: the Community meetings and the B2B Virtual Fair for employers.

September 14 and 15, 2021 – Meeting sessions for community stakeholders!

The goal of the community meetings is to position Francophone immigration as a solution for Canadian employers and to discuss its impact on the communities. They will also allow to:

  • discover the tools available to you in order to attract qualified francophone and bilingual
  • learn about the francophone Mobility program;
  • identify services to foster workforce retention.
