Advantage Mississauga completed the Talent Connections pilot project on September 30, 2015, under the leadership of the Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT), with funding provided by stakeholders, Sheridan College and University of Toronto, Mississauga.


With full support from MBOT’s members and strategic partners, we accomplished the following:

  • Acquired 20 projects/placements in year one, and 70 in year two  
  • Generated 400 business connections during  the 2 years
  • Created a report using Business Engagement Focus Groups, outlining the challenges and gaps between academia, business and youth (BEFG Report)
  • Formed a partnership with Magnet, a portal where opportunities chase people, with a strong focus on students being matched directly with employers on a daily basis

Business Learning Series - Hire Slow, Fire Fast


Tuesday, October 20
The "hire slow, fire fast" mantra doesn't mean you take months to bring on new employees, or that you fire team members based on knee-jerk reactions. Instead it means being careful about who you hire and who you keep. It means taking the time to find the right people and admitting you made a bad hire as soon as you realize it.


Join us as our panel of experts will help you understand how “hire slow, fire fast” can increase the talent level of your organization and protect you from unnecessary risks.
