Each Advisory Board member will be passionate about Canada’s future prosperity, with a genuine affinity for and commitment to ensuring Canada’s workforce is future-ready and able to effectively compete globally.

Forward-thinking community and business leaders with employment and training services and workforce development experience as well as leaders with a wide range of experience, which may include digital technology/automation, artificial intelligence, big data and analytics, human resources, economics, demographics, research, academia, or policy development are highly relevant for the Board.
