Halifax Connector Program Celebrates 10 Years of Success

Posted: August 23, 2019

Nearly 100 Connectors, Halifax Partnership investors and partners celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Halifax Connector Program last night on the Harbour Queen.

The Halifax Partnership launched the Connector Program in 2009. This simple and effective program matches newcomers and recent graduates, called Connectees, with business and community leaders, called Connectors, who refer them to three contacts in their professional network.

Since 2009, the Connector Program has matched more than 3,100 Connectees with nearly 1,500 Connectors to grow their professional networks. Last year, the program achieved record numbers of new Connectees (539), new Connectors (218), and jobs found by Connectees (274). These results directly impact our progress toward the Halifax Economic Growth Plan long-term vision of growing Halifax’s population to 550,000 and its GDP to $30 billion by 2031.
