Multi-Sector Skills Recruitment Mission to
Paris, France & Brussels, Belgium
The Nova Scotia Office of Immigration is working closely with partners and the business community to identify and anticipate Nova Scotia’s workforce needs and to address shortages of skills that exist in identified sectors. France and Belgium continue to stand out as reliable sources of bilingual (French-English) and multilingual immigrants to Nova Scotia. In November of 2012, the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration will lead a mission to the annual Destination Canada Job Fair in Paris and Brussels.
The Nova Scotia Office of Immigration is currently exploring the interest of community partners, business organizations and employers in participating in this mission.
