TRIEC Council

TRIEC’s Council is the reason that we came into being. It’s a multi-stakeholder group of leaders, who come together to work out solutions to the issue of immigrant unemployment, and inform TRIEC’s work.

Membership is organizational. Council members represent various groups: employers, immigrants, labour, occupational regulatory bodies, post-secondary institutions, assessment service providers, community organizations, and all three levels of government.

The TRIEC Council meets once a year.
