Watch: Destination Employment Program Changing Lives in Halifax

Destination Employment recently marked an exciting milestone, successfully placing its first Destination Employment employee with the Atlantica Hotel Halifax.

The Atlantica has a history of hiring newcomers through the Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia (ISANS) Immigrant Youth Employability Program. This successful hiring of newcomers highlights the property’s welcoming environment, employee support network, and opportunities for advancement—the key attributes Destination Employment is looking for in employers.

Together with the Hotel Association of Canada and the Nova Scotia Tourism Human Resource Council, Tourism HR Canada invites you to take a journey with David Clark, General Manager of the Atlantica Hotel, alongside two employees, Abdoulie Bujang and Amer Sankari, who joined the hotel with a passion for tourism and exceptional guest services.

The three were also recently featured in Canadian Lodging News: Destination Employment comes to Atlantica.
