With 25,000 international delegates descending upon Toronto for the Collision technology conference between May 20th and May 23rd there is no better time for Canadian companies to connect with international talent.

To help showcase the opportunities for international talent in Toronto and Canada, on May 24th the City of Toronto, in partnership with MaRS, NewCo, Startup Open House, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada, are hosting the StartUp HERE Innovation Showcase on May 24th.

The full-day of events will provide a range of opportunities for international talent to learn more about the Canadian innovation ecosystem, as well as interact with potential employers and connect with Immigration officials.

“This is really an opportunity for Toronto and Canadian companies to engage with international talent at scale,” shared Chris Rickett, Manager of Special Projects with the City of Toronto. “It's not often that 25,000 international visitors with the skills we need to continue to grow our innovation community come for a visit.”

Companies that are interested in engaging talent as part of Collision can sign-up to be part of the Talent Marketplace that will be hosted at MaRS between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on May 24th. Or they can choose to have talent come visit them by participating in NewCo Talks between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the same day.
