Regional Sounding Tour
On behalf of the Future Skills Centre, The Conference Board of Canada is facilitating the Regional Sounding Tour, which aims to bring together Canadians who are actively engaged in the country’s skills and training community, as well as individuals interested in learning more about skills development and the future of work. These events will be rolled out across the country, in communities in every province and territory.
Each event will include a brief introduction to the Future Skills Centre’s mandate and objectives, with updates on its operations and activities. This will be followed by the facilitation of small group discussions with participants to discuss their thoughts and ideas about how the Future Skills Centre can best support their region today for workforce opportunities of the future.
The purpose of the Regional Sounding Tour is to:
- Build awareness of the Future Skills Centre mission among skills stakeholders;
- Expand regional networks of skills stakeholders and partners; and
- Inform the Future Skills Centre’s research plan and investment strategy.
