“Congratulations on a successful event!” “ Well done, ERIEC team!” “ What a wonderful event! We enjoyed and learned a lot from the sessions, successful story sharing, and networking”.
What a great day we all had! These were just some of the quotes from the e-mails we received the day after our Annual Global Talent Conference last week at the Fantasyland Hotel & Conference Centre. The participants’ feedback was amazing.
This annual conference is our signature career development event for internationally trained professionals and employer leaders from the Edmonton business community and government with an interest in the successful integration into our local workforce.
The Honourable Thomas Lukaszuk, Minister of Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour, provided his greetings on behalf of the Province of Alberta to the audience. As the majority of the audience were professional immigrants, his insights and perspectives on ‘connecting the global talent pool’ made everyone feel welcomed and assured them that Alberta was the right choice for those who made the decision to move to Canada. The additional welcome speeches that made by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the City of Edmonton, carried this same sentiment and spirit.
Stayed tuned later in March as we will share with you surveys and summaries of the conference!
