ITS in Mississauga Online Employer Resource Feature: Part 5 
ITS (Internationally Trained & Skilled) in Mississauga is a program funded by the Ontario Government, an initiative of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, and is part of the Global Experience at Work Program.
The objective of ITS in Mississauga is to create and increase awareness amongst employers on the benefits of hiring Internationally Trained Professionals.
Through the program Mississauga Board of Trade has identified barriers & challenges businesses face when hiring foreign trade professionals. We then explored and identified key service support agencies that are able to help navigate employers through the process of hiring Internationally Trained Professionals.
For the ease and convenience of employers, each agency was individually profiled at www.itsinmississauga.ca under "Employer Resource," but we didn't stop there.
We also travelled to their offices and filmed them to discuss the services they provide and how they have helped local businesses (employers who have used their services were also interviewed).
This installment features is with HireImmigrants.ca
