The Alberta Government funded the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement (CEIIA) to create a guide for employers to help integrate internationally trained individuals (ITIs) across employment sectors in Alberta. The CEIIA worked in collaboration with Talent Pool, an Alberta employers’ resource and information hub located in Calgary.
This project produced a resource that aims to help employers of small to medium-sized businesses:
- enhance their recruiting and hiring processes to more successfully attract ITIs
- enhance their workplace environment by making it more equitable and inclusive to help in the retention of ITIs
- understand the influences of culture on one’s perspective and behaviour
- locate resources that are currently offered in Alberta to facilitate the selection and retention of ITIs.
