Metro Vancouver Refugee Response Team offers survey for employers
To facilitate workforce entry of Metro Vancouver refugees, the Metro Vancouver Refugee Response Team (MVRRT) is conducting a survey of employers. Since the influx of Syrian refugees into BC, many employers have come forward with an interest in hiring refugees. However, few “job matches” have been made.
The key objectives of the survey are to:
1. gain an understanding of the interest and capacity of employers to hire refugees;
2. understand the range of employment possibilities within Metro Vancouver for refugees especially for those with limited language and transferable skills; and
3.identify existing positions / job opportunities for refugees.
