How We Make Change

How We Make Change

In addition to finding solutions for employers and immigrants, TRIEC is also committed to changing attitudes and behaviour around immigrant employment in the Toronto Region. This takes time and deliberate action.

Much of our efforts are focused on finding and recognizing leadership and innovation through our annual Immigrant Success Awards. We also work closely with government to try to improve public policy.

We know that we can be much more effective if we work collaboratively with partners. TRIEC does its part to contribute to a national movement through ALLIES and, we convene local partners and relevant stakeholders to brainstorm new ideas.
