Connecting with Educators on the Skills Gap
The skills gap is a leading barrier to competitiveness for Canadian business, and the Canadian business community has told us of a mismatch between the skills of the unemployed and the requirements of current job openings. One of the reasons for this may be because educators are not fully aware of employers’ needs. Chambers of commerce have an important role to play in connecting educators and employers so that schools can properly advise students where the jobs are and what skills they’ll need to do those jobs.
We have created a competition to highlight the initiatives our member chambers are undertaking with schools in their communities and to encourage those chambers that have not yet reached out to their schools to get involved. The winners of the competition will present their projects at our AGM in Kelowna as well as win a free registration to the AGM.
