Great cities attract and retain talent


Great cities attract and retain talent.

Smart businesses hire people with diverse backgrounds and skills, and leverage that diversity to grow their business.

Immigration is crucial for ensuring the continued growth and prosperity of our community and to respond to the reality of our aging and shrinking workforce.

Guelph is home to the Guelph Wellington Local Immigration Partnership, which identifies settlement needs to create a caring and equitable community. A new portal provides resources for newcomers to live, learn, work and do business in Guelph.

Great cities embrace diversity.

    Maybe we should also do our best to keep local talent local. Retaining talent is about more than just immigration.

    Absolutely. Our community has much to offer. Our Business Retention and Expansion Program in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce and University of Guelph is another program aimed to keep talent by retaining jobs.
