Media Advisory: Minister Hawkins to Host Second Minister’s Roundtable on Immigration

The Honourable Al Hawkins, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, will host the second Minister’s Roundtable on Immigration today (Wednesday, June 13). Minister Hawkins will be available to the media at 3:30 p.m. at the Capital Hotel, 208 Kenmount Road, in St. John’s.

The roundtable brings together representatives of various sectors including the business community, labour, the K-12 education system, post-secondary institutions, municipalities, community organizations and service providers. It serves as a forum for discussion and collaboration as members combine efforts to find innovative ways to recruit and retain more newcomers.

Members will share updates of their activities since the inaugural roundtable was held in February 2018 and will discuss priority subjects identified by stakeholders such as enhancing public and employer awareness.
