Workopolis and Aboriginal Link join forces on Diversity Recruitment

August 2, 2012 - Aboriginal Link, the Premier Direct Communication service provider to the Canadian Aboriginal Market, and Workopolis, Canada’s largest and most trafficked job board, announced that Aboriginal Link’s ‘Community Connections’ program will be included as part of the Workopolis diversity recruitment solution. The co-branded product is scheduled to launch in the fall. 

“We are excited to be working with Workopolis to bring career opportunities to Canada’s Aboriginal Peoples” said Michael Milanese, President and CEO of Aboriginal Link. “Bringing together the brand building and awareness capability of our ‘Community Connections’ program, and Workopolis’ tactical outreach solution, creates a unique opportunity for both the private and public sector to build a long-term diversity recruitment strategy.”

The agreement will provide Workopolis customers with a Direct Communication recruiting solution that gives them access to the 1.5 million Aboriginal Canadians. Canadian employers will benefit from the combined strength of two national brands with a strong regional and national presence right across the country.

"Workopolis is proud to partner with Aboriginal Link to help employers successfully reach and engage with Canada’s vast Aboriginal population," said Kelly Dixon, President of Workopolis. "The goal of this program is to bring a new pool of great candidates for our employers and to offer a new source of jobs for Aboriginal Canadians. Connecting employers and job seekers, especially when we can help bring opportunities to under-represented groups, is something that Workopolis is passionate about."
