Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Sean Fraser announced new funding partner organizations to widen the scope of Canada’s Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP). The new partner organizations are Talent Beyond Boundaries, TalentLift, and Jumpstart Refugee Talent. These collaborators are providing refugees with an opportunity for a secure future in Canada by offering them jobs before they arrive. In addition, the project is actively working to reduce the feeling of displacement that many refugees experience by connecting them to economic programs already established in Canada. In 2018, the EMPP Pilot Program was created to collaborate with Canadian communities and employers in welcoming 2,000 skilled refugees into the country. Since October 2022, over 100 skilled refugees and their families have received invitations to work in Canada.
