Canada Career Month events have been happening across the province. To contribute in the celebration, Career Development Association of PEI Inc. recently held an interactive networking event at UPEI.
Deputy Minister Sharon Cameron of Workforce and Advanced Learning (WFAL) presented the department’s Strategic Plan, called Engaging Our Workforce for Today and into the Future – 2016-2019.
The plan envisions a prosperous PEI where people want to live, learn, and work. “Our goal was to create a strategic plan that addresses the need to develop, attract and retain an educated, skilled and engaged workforce for a prosperous economy,” says the Deputy Minister. “This work is so very crucial to grow our economy in meaningful ways.”
After the presentation, there was a question and answer period, as well as discussions around the reaction to the plan. The feedback generated will be submitted to WFAL for their review.
Also, Kim Murphy and Lisa Chaisson, Co-Chairs gave an updated of the CDA of PEI activities.
The next CDA of PEI committee meeting will be held Dec 1st, 2016 at The Royalty Centre at 1::30, room 212. If you would like to attend for the first time, email firstname.lastname@example.org
