Northwest Connector

Home What We Do Northwest Connector

Business needs talent. Talent needs opportunity.  

For communities to grow and prosper, they need talented people to put down roots and build their lives. From small tight-knit communities to major metropolitan cities, communities are looking at innovative, proven ways to attract and retain skilled professionals.

We need to build our workforce, but did you know: 

  • Up to 80% of job opportunities do not post publicly 
  • 70% of employers prefer to hire through word of mouth or personal and informal networks 

Northwestern Ontario’s workforce is expected to decline by 12% by 2030 through retirements and 
outmigration.

So how do newcomers to the area and new job seekers connect to opportunity?

The Northwest Connector Program is a unique and innovative workforce development initiative aimed to help pre-qualified individuals who are interested in starting and growing their careers build their professional network, secure relevant jobs and stay in their community.
