Transforming Canada’s immigration environment – A key to our economic recovery
Immigration isn’t something that is top of mind in the day to day of most Canadians, but it’s a fundamental pillar to our social and economic fabric. Canada was built through immigration, dating back well before confederation in 1867, and responsible for the multi-cultural society of today.
In this episode of CGE Radio, hear from Zaina Sovani, Assistant Deputy Minister of Transformation, Digital Solutions Sector and Chief Information Officer at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). She is responsible for leading the department through a major transformational change program focused on improving client experience and service delivery.
Over the past 20 years, Zaina has held many executive roles both in the public service and private sector, gaining the reputation of a builder and transformational leader. Coming to Canada as a refugee herself, Zaina is well attuned to the importance of, and challenges with immigration.
Hear more about the important role of immigration in our economy and society, digital transformation at IRCC, and working in a senior leadership role as a woman and as an immigrant.
