Stakeholder Engagement

The Future Skills Centre is building a pan-Canadian network of partners, and stakeholders to encourage collaboration, the exchange of ideas, and sharing of knowledge and best practices.

Canada’s skills ecosystem is diverse, dynamic, and oftentimes disconnected. The Future Skills Centre is committed to working directly with stakeholders to listen, identify, and better understand the skills challenges Canadians are facing and how best to respond to them. We will support and facilitate collaboration, knowledge sharing, and partnerships among stakeholders in the skills and training sector from coast to coast to coast. 

Building on our expansive network of more than 150 organizations, the Future Skills Centre and its consortium partners are actively reaching out to diverse stakeholders. We are developing a bilingual and accessible approach to introduce and promote our mission. 

The goals of this approach include:

  1. Informing Canadians about the Centre’s mandate, research plans, and investment strategy in the months and years ahead;
  2. Building awareness about how the Future Skills Centre intends to drive impact and systems change across Canada with communities facing barriers to skills training and employment pathways; and
  3. Developing and deepening our relationships with partners and stakeholders to design and build a virtual community of practice, to map the skills ecosystem across Canada, and enhance our presence and understanding of this burgeoning network by attending and participating in community events and initiatives.
