Newcomer Community Connection Program is designed to attract and retain newcomer talent to enhance the economic region by supporting employers to recruit diverse talent for local employment opportunities and to actively promote Sarnia-Lambton employment to newcomers across Ontario.
Through the Newcomer Community Connection Program, Explore Talent Sarnia-Lambton portal was created to allow newcomers to create a profile that will allow them to stand out. It will allow employers to create a profile and search for job seekers actively seeking employment in their industry. This portal is seen as a win-win situation for both the employer and the employee as the employer can use the video resume as a means to understand the employee and the employee can use it as an effective and creative means to present themselves within 60 seconds.
