Halifax International Recruitment Program

Find the right global talent for your industry.

Halifax Partnership is helping employers recruit and hire national and international talent to address critical labour shortages, with a focus on skilled trade gaps impacting the construction industry and Halifax's housing supply.

Our International Recruitment Program gave local employers an opportunity to share their job postings with experienced candidates who are interested in, and ready to, immigrate to Halifax.

Our licensed international recruiter worked with the employers to promote their job openings at national and international job fairs and streamline the recruitment and hiring process.

Our licensed international recruiter is now reviewing all the candidate applications for the job postings and connecting them with participating employers.

How does the International Recruitment Program work?

  1. Halifax employers submitted their open job positions through the form below.
  2. Our licensed international recruiter worked with them to develop job descriptions that attracted candidates from different countries and cultural backgrounds.
  3. Our team promoted your job postings, and Halifax as a place to live and work, at the national and international recruitment fairs.
  4. We are identifying the candidates that best match the requirements of the employers, pre-qualify them, and provide them with a shortlist.
  5. We will guide them through the recruitment and hiring process including the legal, regulatory, logistical, and settlement aspects of hiring international talent.
