TIEDI Public Outreach Events (2012)

The purpose of the Toronto Immigrant Employment Data Initiative- Public Outreach Grant Initiative (POGI) is to complete the research and dissemination cycle initiated by TIEDI in 2008. Through this project, partners and stakeholders of TIEDI will be engaged to identify practise and policy implications and develop recommendations that emerge from the research. This project will also disseminate the TIEDI model of community-driven, data-based and policy-relevant research to other significant immigrant communities across Canada through various conference presentations and social media.

Since the launch of TIEDI's POGI event in October 2011, TIEDI's team members have given over 30 presentations.
