Destination Employment helped newcomers gain meaningful employment in Canadian hotels, giving them the experience to build a successful future in Canada. The pilot initiative was a win-win for hoteliers and newcomers. Hoteliers were faced with difficulties filling job vacancies, and newcomers needed opportunities to find employment once they settled in Canada. The program was also a win for the Government of Canada, as it provided a new approach to help integrate newcomers (including refugees) and created an opportunity for them to obtain their first Canadian workplace experience. The program may be replicated in other areas of the tourism sector or in other sectors of the economy looking for labour.
