On behalf of the Future Skills Centre–Centre des Compétences futures (FSC-CCF), the University of British Columbia, Douglas College, the British Columbia Institute of Technology, the Business/Higher Education Roundtable, RADIUS SFU and The Conference Board of Canada have partnered to facilitate the British Columbia stop on the Regional Sounding Tour.
Sessions will begin with a brief introduction to the Future Skills Centre’s mandate and objectives, with updates on its operations and activities. Next, the session will hold small group conversations with people who reside in British Columbia to hear your thoughts and ideas about how the Future Skills Centre can best support the province today for workforce opportunities of the future.
The aim of the Future Skills Centre is to test and rigorously measure innovative approaches to identify emerging in-demand skills, and help Canadians develop the skills they need to take full advantage of and succeed in the new economy.
We want to hear your perspective on how the Future Skills Centre can best meet the diverse future skills needs of people who reside in British Columbia. Your contributions will help inform the Future Skills Centre’s research and innovation investment strategies.
