Regional Sounding Tour

In collaboration with The Conference Board of Canada, FSC presents our second Regional Sounding Tour (RST). This tour will connect 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. The tour will take place online beginning in December 2020, and will feature a different forum in every province and territory that focuses on regional needs. 

Facilitating group discussions through the RST offers an opportunity to engage in a conversation with FSC on your experiences of what works—and what doesn’t—when it comes to skills development. Your feedback will allow us to tailor our work to meet the needs of local communities today and in the future.  

2020-2021 Tour Stops

Building on the success of the 2019-2020 RST, this second tour will focus on how the country has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, what the path to recovery looks like, and how the Future Skills Centre can help. 

Events are free, but space is limited. Register now to reserve a seat and participate in the discussion.
