Opportunities with CEDEC

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

When building its Workforce Development Strategy, CEDEC held consultations with stakeholders to understand the challenges faced by Quebec’s English-speaking workforce and the challenges faced by employment service providers. The lack of a coordinated continuum of workforce development products and services was identified as a priority issue.

CEDEC seeks the expertise of a Research Consultant who will work with CEDEC’s team to lead the development of a framework for an “employer/user”-centred service continuum, including an integrated network approach to workforce development.

b) Compare the current situation with best practices in other sectors and jurisdictions
