WHO WE ARE
Informing businesses in Newfoundland and Labrador on the resources available to acquire the talent they need.
The success of Newfoundland and Labrador's economy is dependent in part on the ability of its businesses to find the skilled workers that are needed to facilitate and drive growth. Newfoundland and Labrador is experiencing significant demographic changes. With an unprecedented number of retirements, a low fertility rate, and large numbers of out-migration, by 2025 there will be a 10% decline in the working age population. That’s 35,000 fewer people in the labour market! Employers in the province are already starting to experience these workforce challenges, and sometimes the talent that they need is not available locally. This talent may need to be discovered outside of the province.
TeamGrowNL is an initiative that aims to help local businesses meet their human resources needs, if not available locally, by informing them on existing immigration programming in Newfoundland and Labrador and about opportunities to attract expatriate Newfoundlander and Labradorians living abroad.
WHAT WE DO
TeamGrowNL representatives work with industry associations to spread awareness about available immigration programming, and also engage one-on-one with interested businesses to guide them through the required processes or by promoting their vacancies directly to NL expats.
TeamGrowNL has recently partnered with MUN Alumni on select Alumni events across North America, in which a TeamGrowNL representative will be available on site to chat directly with Alumni about current and future career opportunities available in Newfoundland and Labrador. These events will take place in Houston, Calgary, Toronto, and Halifax throughout 2020.
If you would like to learn more about available programming and/or expat opportunities, and have staff from TeamGrowNL meet with your business, please contact us. Our services are completely free of charge.
