FRANCOPHONE IMMIGRATION – AN ASSET FOR BUSINESS IN B.C.

Skilled Talents

The variety of training and education, skills and experiences of immigrant candidates allows companies to benefit from diverse approaches and know-how, which fosters their productivity and growth.

Bilingualism

In an increasingly global economy, bilingualism is becoming a major asset for British Columbia
businesses that aim to grow nationally and internationally.  

Diversity

Cultural diversity is a source of innovation and creativity. It stimulates productivity, promotes working together in harmony, and reduces turn-over. Businesses that recruit a more diverse workforce tend to have greater appeal for other talents, while at the same time building cohesive and long-lasting teams.
