About Alberta Global Talent
Alberta Global Talent (ABGT) is an employer readiness and engagement program for Central Alberta employers created by C.A.R.E. Red Deer and funded by the Alberta Government. The website, webtools, workshops and other resources we are making available will assist Central Alberta employers to attract, hire, onboard, and retain qualified immigrants.
Through focus groups, phone and video interviews with Central Alberta business owners, content in our workshops and within our resources and tools is specific to Central Alberta Employers and relevant and timely. These business owners were chosen because they are outstanding examples of best practice employers, strong proponents of a diverse and inclusive workplace, and innovative in their approaches to attracting, hiring, onboarding and retaining immigrant employees. Along with that, existing Canadian and particularly Albertan resources pertaining to hiring and working with immigrant employees have been incorporated. The Alberta Global Talent project is unique in that it will speak specifically to immigrant employment in smaller urban and rural areas.
