By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to find and hire the best candidate for any position based

Canadians agree that no one should face employment barriers simply by virtue of being a woman, a person with a disability, an Aboriginal person, or a member of a visible minority. Yet, the reality is that qualified individuals from these groups have traditionally been hired, employed, and promoted at rates well below their availability in the labour market. All employers want to attract and retain the best talent available. The companies that get the best do so because they draw from the entire labour pool. This training will help ensure that your organization finds and hires the best candidate for any position based solely on merit.
