CEDEC is hosting two days of Workforce Development Sessions.
These two interactive days of discussion are the follow-up to CEDEC’s Workforce Development Discussion Day held in Montreal on October 16, 2017. With the valuable contribution of participants who attended, we will now be moving forward with the development of an action plan to improve coordination among workforce development product and service offerings for Quebec’s English speakers, and with a research plan around improving labour market information pertaining to Quebec’s English-speaking workforce. This action plan will support an innovative and growing Canadian economy by identifying how institutions, employment service providers and employers can better collaborate to deliver services reflecting the needs of the workforce.
*Please indicate if you will join us for the one or both days.
Connecting People to Possibilities
Monday, February 12 | 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
At the previous discussion day on October 16, participants built consensus around gaps in the current offering of workforce development products and services in Quebec, and mapped out some recommendations for improvement that will feed into an action plan being developed by CEDEC. Together on February 12, we will build upon those recommendations as we move towards the development of the Connecting People to Possibilities Plan.
Labour Market Information Research Plan
Tuesday, February 13 | 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
CEDEC research indicates a need for official language data about the English-speaking workforce in Quebec to be more robust and consistently available. During the discussion day on October 16, participants gained a better understanding of specific needs around LMI for various stakeholders, and validated the need for information about the English-speaking workforce in Quebec to be more complete, and presented in a way that is easily understood and usable. Together on February 13, we will explore and prioritize research needs related to the English-speaking workforce in Quebec, as we work towards developing a research action plan.
