Major changes are underway in regard to skills training and education in British Columbia. Three ministries in the Government of BC (Jobs, Tourism, and Skills Training; Education; Advanced Education) have joined forces to place a new priority on trades and technology skills. They have issued a strong call to action, with an emphasis on participation and leadership from industry.
This is an important opportunity for construction employers to shape what’s happening.
"The BCCA is committed to working with the government in a variety of areas including workforce and community development. Our goal is to meet the needs of the industry and encourage government to develop policy and programs that assist in the industry meeting its goals."
