Cooperation Canada is proud to announce it is a recipient of the 2021 Employer Excellence Award by Hire Immigrants Ottawa.
Each year, Hire Immigrants Ottawa, an initiative that promotes the professional integration of skilled immigrants in the Ottawa area, presents the Employer Excellence Awards. The recipients are employers in the region who have innovative workplace policies that foster the recruitment and integration of skilled immigrant employees into their organizations.
Cooperation Canada is one of four recipients of this award, selected by an independent bench of human resource executives and professionals and other stakeholders. The awards were presented on March 9 during the 2021 Employer Council of Champions Summit and Awards.
“We appreciate this recognition, but more than that, we value the incredible contribution our new employees bring to our work,” said Nicolas Moyer, Cooperation Canada’s CEO. “As an internationally minded organization, our increasingly diverse workforce helps us better deliver on our mandate and serve our partners and stakeholders around the world engaged in international cooperation.”
Over many years, Cooperation Canada has built strong partnerships with organizations and programs specialized in new immigrants’ professional integration such as EXPERICA, from the Vanier Community Centre.
