We are all Connected.

The WR Connectors Program helps grow our local economy by expanding the professional networks of highly qualified newcomers to Canada.

This informal networking session is simple. Meet with a professionally-qualified newcomer to Canada for half an hour and then suggest three names from your network that folks can get in touch with. You can meet over coffee, lunch (or whatever works for you) and have a chat. That's it. It's that simple.

Through these meetings, the Connector gains access to a wealth of diverse, pre-qualified talent and Connectees gain insight into their professional network and connect with career opportunities.

Connectors are you and me.

They're the person you share a wall with or sit next to at lunch. Whether you only have a few years of experience or are a C-level executive, we all have the potential to be Connectors.

This is your chance to grow our Region - and your network - to help somebody and their career.

Connectees are newcomers to Canada

Highly qualified in their professional fields, but new to Canada and the Waterloo Region business community. These are people who just need the right introduction.
