The 2010 ALLIES Learning Exchange brings together local stakeholders including businesses, civic leaders, universities and colleges, immigrant agencies and all levels of government in participating communities from Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.

ALLIES (Assisting Local Leaders with Immigrant Employment Strategies) is a five-year project jointly funded by Maytree and the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. ALLIES provides the information, learning and funding required by communities to adapt and implement successful immigrant employment approaches used by multi-stakeholder initiatives across the country. The project brings local players together to develop their own practical solutions for the integration of skilled immigrants into the labour market.
