Celebrate Living Wage Week

Included will be a representative from VanCity Credit Union and Hamilton's public school board Trustee Alex Johnstone discussing why their organizations moved forward on living wage.

Why Mentoring Matters

While recent immigrants to Canada are more highly educated than previous cohorts and the Canadian-born, they earn lower wages and have more difficulties entering the labour market.

One of the main factors that explains the gap in employment rates is the lack of social and professional networks that new immigrants have in their new home.
