Event characteristics

Event characteristics

The virtual, bilingual event, “Catalyzing Innovation: Identifying, Attracting, and Retaining Talent in Order to Be Competitive,” will provide solutions for businesses that are concerned about their growth potential and that are experiencing issues related to the labour shortage.

The goal is to inform participants about opportunities, resources, and best practices so that they can do the following:

  • Determine their needs in relation to skilled labour to ensure the future of their business in a global context of economic turbulence.

  • Develop strategies and use appropriate resources to fill positions with good candidates who are immigrants.

  • Attract and retain immigrant employees.

La Cité

The Centre de développement professionnel et entrepreneurial, an integral part of Collège La Cité, is a centre of expertise that offers a vast range of personalized training and business development solutions in order to meet current and future labour market needs.


We provide you with access to a substantial number of graduates, to job seekers through various French-language pathways adapted for employers, and to over 200 bilingual consultants and instructors, who are skilled and experienced, which allows for offering a range of professional training and high-quality services.


It is important for an organization’s human resources plan to be directly related to its strategic plan. A human resources plan serves to identify future needs and establish whether, through the expertise of existing staff, the business will be able to meet them. Too often, businesses leave it up to employees to individually identify their training needs, without a comprehensive view of their strengths and weaknesses. However, for set strategic objectives to be met, it is important to be able to measure employee skills overall in order to identify the skills that have been acquired and those that need to be developed.

  • Determine needs in relation to skilled labour to ensure the future of your business in times of economic turbulence.

  • Develop strategies and use appropriate resources to find the right candidates for positions through immigration.

  • Attract and retain immigrant employees for the long term.
