Congratulations to John Tory

The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) offers many congratulations to the incoming mayor of Toronto, John Tory, today.

John is a former board member of TRIEC and has been a public advocate for the importance of workplace diversity and inclusion, and the vital contribution that Toronto’s skilled immigrants can make to the region.

We’re looking forward to working with John and the new Council, and hope to see immigrant unemployment and underemployment high on the agenda in new mayoral term.

We wish John all the best in his new role.
