New Brunswick Aims to “Steal” Toronto’s Technology Talent

Share Article

The Population Growth Secretariat of the Province of New Brunswick leads the way! Partnered with a number of the Province’s HiTech employers, they are taking aggressive action to find the technology talent they need to sustain and to grow their businesses in the Province.

New Brunswick is a place where you can be yourself, belong and be better. This is the message we will be taking with us to Toronto as we encourage these professionals to be part of New Brunswick’s self-sufficient future.

CareerDoor Inc. announces the Province of New Brunswick’s Population Growth Secretariat as a major regional sponsor of its Technology & Technology Sales Career Fair to be held in Toronto at the Downtown Marriott Hotel, February 19th., and 20th., 2008.

“With all the talk regarding ‘the technology talent war’, it is gratifying to finally see a department of government take a constructive lead to address this real life issue. We read frequently of the technology talent shortage and yet so few take creative action to address the problem. Therefore, it is refreshing to see the Population Growth Secretariat of the Province of New Brunswick working with a number of HiTech provincial employers do just that – and CareerDoor Inc. is excited to have been selected to help.” says CareerDoor CEO Terri Joosten.

“Just two weeks after launching New Brunswick’s first Population Growth Strategy in which we committed to stepping up recruitment missions, the Population Growth Secretariat is excited to partner with CareerDoor and lead these innovative technology employers to Toronto,” said Greg Byrne, Minister responsible for the Population Growth Secretariat. “New Brunswick is a place where you can be yourself, belong and be better. This is the message we will be taking with us to Toronto as we encourage these professionals to be part of New Brunswick’s self-sufficient future.”

In light of the ever-tightening technology professionals talent pool in Canada, more innovative and aggressive recruiting measures are needed at the local levels across the country to better utilize this precious resource – our technology professionals. Regional relocation; improved talent utilization, re-education and a finely-tuned infrastructure to facilitate face-to-face meetings between employers and talent all need to be addressed to give our talent the opportunity for career growth. It is to these principles CareerDoor Inc is dedicated.
