The purpose of the Select for Success program is to engage, connect and build relationships with employers and owners of various small to medium-sized businesses and enterprises to educate them on the prospects, benefits and the potential of employing newcomers.

Furthermore, the goal is to learn the opinions, behaviours, experiences, and expectations of employers across different industries in regards to hiring a newcomer as an employee.

Additionally, the Select for Success program also focuses on identifying the various recruitment styles, training methods and job maintenance techniques of business owners with a focus on recruitment, onboarding and retention of immigrant employees.

The program helps facilitate a pathway to connect with employers by understanding their varying needs from a small business owner to a large-scale company. Subsequently, employers and newcomers are connected, which aids in workforce development for employers who need to find the right fit for their company.

From April 2019 to present, there have been 652 newcomers that have been connected with employers through the Select for Success Program, as well as through Labour Market Information, Youth Labour Market and Job Search Workshops Programs.
