The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC)

The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) is a multi-stakeholder council that brings leadership together to create and champion solutions to better integrate skilled immigrants in the Toronto Region labour market.

Founded by Maytree and the Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance in 2003, TRIEC is taking action on the underutilization of skilled immigrants' education, talent and experience. TRIEC believes that by bringing all stakeholders together through a council – employers, regulatory bodies, professional associations, educators, labour, community groups, government and immigrants – we can develop local and practical solutions.

We help employers and immigrants find solutions. We connect companies to programs that can help them better recruit and retain immigrants; we develop and distribute learning tools and curriculum; and we help immigrants build their professional connections through mentoring and professional immigrant networks.

TRIEC is determined to make change in our city. We build awareness of the value of the immigrant talent pool through media, awards and events; we work with government on public policy; and, we bring together partners to find new solutions.
