TMU receives $3M from BMO to advance newcomer workforce integration research


Toronto Metropolitan University has received $3M from BMO toward the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration program. This funding will support research into migration and the Canadian labour market. It will also establish the BMO Newcomer Workforce Integration Lab, which will develop evidence-based recommendations for employers on how they can leverage the talents of newcomers. “This recent gift will help companies address the distinct challenges faced by newcomers as they enter the labour market, and will strengthen their odds for success in their careers and in Canada,” said TMU President Mohamed Lachemi.
