SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – If you or your family are interested in moving to Sault Ste. Marie and are immigrants than this program might be for you.
According to Paul Sayers, the labour and development coordinator for Future Sault Ste. Marie, 43 people have been recommended through the program since its start in November 2019.
“Candidates can apply as long as they have a permanent full-time job offer from a local employer and then they meet our community, federal eligibility and employer eligibility requirements,” said Sayer. “If they meet our criteria, including the full-time job offer, then there’s a likelihood that they would get a recommendation from our Community Recommendation Committee.”
The committee consists of mostly city staff from various departments. Sayer said FutureSSM, Sault and Area Local Immigration Partnership, Sault Ste Marie Economic Development and the Career Centre are all represented on the committee.
