The Gateway - 2nd Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) - 2015-11-09

Sheraton Parkway 600 Highway 7 East, Richmond Hill, Ontario

On November 9, 2015 York Region will be hosting its second conference for internationally educated professionals (IEPs) called The Gateway. This conference is a day-long series of workshops, panel discussions, keynote speeches, and networking opportunities where IEPs and newcomer entrepreneurs will learn about the Canadian work culture, credentials and accreditation, entrepreneurial opportunities and supports, networking and mentoring, and York Region's business environment. The morning sessions will have a focus on soft skills like networking and understanding employment rights and responsibilities, where the afternoon sessions will be more sector-specific. The following sectors will be represented:

- Information Technology

- Human Services

- Healthcare

- Industry and Trades

- Engineering

- Business

PINs will be there to reach out to newcomers and promote the benefits of joining a professional immigrant association.

The Gateway is looking for volunteer Career Ambassadors to network with the conference participants and share their own experiences and best practices in their field. If you are available to volunteer for a few hours and give back by guiding newcomers in their career search, please register at the following link:
