The SDECB (Société de dévéloppement économique de la C.-B) invites you to join us for a free event: “Connecting your Business with French speaking Talent!”

This information and discussion session is financed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

This is a great opportunity to discuss and learn more about:

1- The challenges of Hiring Skilled Francophone Immigrants:
Connection with immigrant communities
Costs associated with properly assessing immigrant skills
Time, financial, and human resource investments needed to recruit and integrate immigrant talent
Difficulty managing and dealing with a culturally diverse workforce

2-Benefits of hiring French Speakers:
Get access to specific employment grants to encourage you to recruit qualified francophone candidates already present in BC.

Use the francophone mobility work permit to recruit francophone candidates from abroad.

Our settlement and community services are here for the candidates and their families to welcome and them.

Refreshments will be served during the networking period.

If you have any questions about the event or would like to receive additional information, please contact Jessica Rogers –Project Manager at
