The honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship and the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism, announced funding for an innovative pilot project that will connect newcomers with job in the hotel industry. The announcement was done in the presence of Philip Mondor, President of Tourism HR Canada, and Susie Grynol, President of the Hotel Association of Canada.
The move was planned to address the barriers of employment to ensure successful settlement and integration of all newcomers, including refugees. The private sector can also play a crucial role by hiring newcomers directly in their workforce or integrate them into their supply chains.
Under the Service Delivery Improvements Funding stream of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Tourism HR Canada will get nearly $7 million to run a 3 year long pilot project, in collaboration with the Hotel Association of Canada, which will assist up to 1,300 newcomers-mostly refugees in gaining job experience, while developing and testing an innovative settlement service delivery model. Also, the newcomers on job will have the opportunity to learn and improve their English or French through informal learning, which will be augmented by formal language training.
Tourism HR Canada will partner with different associations and local labour to employ newcomers in sustainable and long-term hotel jobs in five locations namely Atlantic Canada, Southern Ontario, Saskatoon/Regina, Banff/Lake Louise/Southern Alberta, and the Yukon. Tourism accounts $41.2 billion of Canada’s GDP in 2017 and thus, is a powerful economic driver in the Canadian communities. But the problem lies in sustaining and attracting the employees to meet this demand. Thus, this pilot project will help to support newcomer integration and also ensure quality service in the industry.
June 20 is celebrated as World Refugee Day worldwide, which offers an opportunity to reflect on the shared responsibility to help those who are exiled, victimized and are in highly need of protection. Canada is known to provide protection to those who need it the most by providing refuge to the world’s most vulnerable people. The country has welcomed millions of newcomers who have helped them in building society, culture and economy in enduring ways.
