Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan for 2017-2020 provides clear direction in a complex, ever-changing world about how TRIEC can make an even greater contribution to building an inclusive labour market where job-ready immigrant professionals can fully participate.

We talked to partners, stakeholders, board members and staff and this roadmap is the result. Our strategic framework, TRIEC’s Theory of Change, sets out how we will work to achieve measurable impact for our key beneficiaries. Using this as our foundation, we have outlined key priorities, goals, actions and measures to ensure we achieve our objectives through the unique contribution of our organization.


Our Strategic Plan identifies two target beneficiaries:

  • Mid-sized to large employers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)
  • Job-ready immigrant professionals

To support these beneficiaries better, we have identified three key priorities:

  • Grow mentoring impact
  • Broaden and deepen immigrant inclusion in workplaces
  • Maximize the role of partners and champions

These three priorities are supported by two organizational priorities that strengthen the engine that drives this vital work:

  • Build TRIEC’s capacity to support our priorities
  • Curate information and insights to ground TRIEC’s work.

Theory of Change

Our Theory of Change is our strategic framework and a visual roadmap for realizing the changes we seek. This framework is at the heart of our strategic plan. By articulating our planned activities and the resulting impact, we can be more intentional, accountable and strategic in our work.
