Bruce County is inviting local entrepreneurs, business owners and hiring leaders to the Immigration Strategies for Workforce Success event, designed to help businesses discover how hiring through immigration can lead to business growth and sustainability by connecting them with immigration experts and local businesses who have successfully navigated through the pathways of hiring international candidates.
