Are you interested in the future of work and skills? The Future Skills Centre Regional Sounding Tour wants to hear from you.

The Future Skills Centre aims to identify emerging in-demand skills across the country, with the goal of helping Canadians prepare for a changing workforce.

This cross-Canada tour engages diverse communities to learn about the different regions’ priorities. This information will help inform the Future Skills Centre’s research and innovation investment strategies.

On January 30, the tour is coming to Winnipeg, with two mirrored sessions at Red River College. While the afternoon session is already full, the breakfast session still has space available.

Manitobans who are engaged or interested in the province’s skills and training community are invited to share their expertise on the diverse future skills needs of the region.

This free event will include a brief introduction to the Future Skills Centre’s mandate and objectives. Following that, participants can voice their thoughts and ideas in small group conversations about how the Future Skills Centre can best support the province today for workforce opportunities of the future.

• Breakfast session: 8:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. January 30, 2020 at Red River College’s Notre Dame Campus

While the event is free, space is limited.
