CCAA  Labour Market Strategy Day III

Our third event took place in October 2018. We discussed the further evolution of the plan as well as reporting on achievements during the year. We were pleased to have Government representatives present, not only from Employment, Social Development Canada (ESDC), but also from Transport Canada (TC) and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED). This time our feedback groups tackled five key areas of strategy:

  • Increasing the participation of indigenous persons in the workplace

  • Increasing the participation of Women in the workplace

  • Increasing Work Integrated Learning / Co-op opportunities in industry

  • Addressing the pilot shortage in Canada

  • Education / Industry partnerships

Since the event we have made further updates to the short-term goals in the strategic framework and continued to look for opportunities to advance the agenda both within and outside of our industry.
