[APEC Webinar] Navigating Atlantic Canada’s Changing Labour Market

Date: March 29, 2022

Navigating Atlantic Canada’s Changing Labour Market
Solutions to our Skills Challenges

Widespread reports of labour and skill shortages in Atlantic Canada have quickly reappeared during the recovery from COVID-19. They are unlikely to dissipate anytime soon. To support a healthy and inclusive labour market for years to come, government and businesses need effective strategies that address ongoing shifts in our region’s economy.

Join us for our latest webinar, which will address topics such as:

  • How will factors such as our demographics, digitalization and the greening of the economy impact our future labour force and the skills they need?
  • Which industries are struggling the most with labour and skill shortages?
  • Are urban or rural employers most affected by these trends?
  • What are some practical solutions to address our skills challenges?

APEC’s researchers will provide their assessment of current and future skills issues in Atlantic Canada. They will also share their advice on practical solutions that can be applied across the economy, drawing upon deep dives we have undertaken on four sectors.

There will be a Q&A period following the presentations.

This event is free, but registration is required.
