Workshop to be held in Neustadt on hiring skilled immigrants

A half-day workshop in Neustadt next week will offer local employers some information when it comes to hiring newcomers and skilled immigrants.

The seminar is put on by Saugeen Connects, which is a partnership of five municipalities including Hanover, West Grey, Minto, Brockton and Wellington North, and the Saugeen Economic Development Corporation.

A panel of local employers will share their experiences of hiring newcomers, including the benefits, the challenges, and resources they found useful in tapping into the newcomer market.

Representatives from local economic development offices will be on hand to assist employers with next steps.

The seminar is on Wednesday, May 1 at the Neustadt Community Centre, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Anyone interested is asked to RSVP by April 25 to Jamie Doherty: or phone 519-799-5750  ext. 5.
