#WelcomingEconomy for Refugees

Under the leadership of co-chairs The Honourable Ratna Omidvar and Darrell Pinto, the Refugee Jobs Agenda Roundtable offers a platform for over 80 employers, employment and immigrant serving agencies and government representatives to increase refugees’ access to meaningful employment opportunities.

This page includes information about one of the Roundtable’s flagship initiatives, the Toronto Refugee Hiring Event – co-organized by Jumpstart Refugee Talent and World Education Services and with the support of Starbucks, the Tent Partnership for Refugees, the City of Toronto and multiple other agencies – as well as resources to help businesses connect with refugee talent and build more inclusive workplaces.

Media assets from the 2022 #WelcomingEconomy for Refugees campaign, highlighting the social and economic contributions and successes of refugees, can also be found in the sections below.
