What We Do

MeBIC is Maine’s only resource dedicated to providing information, education and advocacy on immigration and related issues from the business and economic perspective.

    • Advocates for initiatives, laws and policies that welcome immigrants and facilitate their ability to reach their full potential in Maine as workers, entrepreneurs, consumers, and citizens.
    • Partners with Maine’s business community to understand their labor needs and what resources would help them successfully engage Maine’s immigrants in their workforce.
    • Informs businesses and economic leaders in Maine about how federal, state and local policies, laws, and actions affect our ability to attract, retain, and integrate immigrants into Maine’s workforce.
    • Collaborates with private and public partners in Maine and nationally to support best practices that foster immigrant integration into Maine’s workforce, economy and society.
