About UnTapped

Tapping into new talent pools is a top priority for BC businesses, with our province poised to be among Canada’s leaders in economic growth in the coming decade. Baby boomers are retiring, fewer young people are entering the workforce, and yet our demand for more skilled workers across all industry sectors and professions continues to grow.

Each year, UnTapped brings together hundreds of BC employers for topical discussions of common recruitment challenges and uncommon solutions, led by forerunners in their fields.

We invite you to join us along with emcee Sonia Deol from Global News, and live performances from M’Girl to celebrate BC’s diversity champions on November 22, 2018 at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver.

“The demand for qualified, motivated employees around the world greatly exceeds supply. One of the reasons is that employers have traditionally over-looked workers that do not fit easily into one-size-fits-all mold.” Randy Lewis

former Senior Vice President, Walgreens
