Connecting new talent with local business leaders

The Northwest Connector Program is a formalized community networking initiative designed to broaden a job seeker’s network through connections with established business leaders in the community. It’s a simple, effective, no cost referral process putting newcomers to Northwestern Ontario and recent graduates in touch with highly networked individuals to better connect to our workforce and settle more successfully in our community.


Connector matches will be made based on industry experience and professional background. Once a match has been made, an email introduction will be you’ll receive an introduction email to set up a virtual meeting with your Connector.


You’ll meet with your Connector for 30 minutes in person, online or over the phone to discuss industry trends, skills and areas of expertise, related news, current market demands and hidden job opportunities in Northwestern Ontario.


Connectors will then make introductions or provide further contacts from their network. These referrals may be other potential employers or influential leaders within their industry.

As Connectees meet with business and community leaders in the region, they gain a better understanding of the local job market, learn about the community, and are exposed to business and career opportunities available in Northwestern Ontario. This simple, yet highly effective process significantly increases the Connectee’s chances of finding meaningful employment in their profession.
