Employ Buffalo Niagara connects local employers with residents seeking job opportunities. While job placement is vital to the success of our region, creating opportunity is only step one in addressing our regional workforce challenges.
The recent population growth in the Buffalo Niagara region has largely been the result of immigrants and refugees. Tapping into the skills this population brings with them will help address our region’s growing workforce development struggles. That is why the Buffalo Niagara Partnership prioritized creating a state professional licensing program for immigrants and refugees as part of our 2018 Advocacy Agenda.
