Labour market issues and limited HR capacity have been identified as a key priority and the number one challenge to business growth in Northeastern Ontario.

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce has indicated that 46% of Northeastern Ontario businesses struggle to hire the right talent. Couple this with the low birth-rate in Ontario and across Canada, youth out-migration and baby-boomer retirements, businesses are facing a difficult hiring situation.
To address this need, the HR North Program has established a Human Resources Support Centre for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) facing labour market challenges.

Let our HR Support Centre recruit for you and find the talent that you need.
We can increase the North’s competitive advantage and help attract investment, students, immigrants, skilled professionals and others to Northeastern Ontario businesses.

Attracting international talent now will build stronger businesses and a stronger community for tomorrow. That’s why hiring immigrants is the right thing to do — it makes for good business.
