Skills and Training
Of the one million job openings ahead, 43 per cent will need trades and technical training. The Skills and Training Plan represents fundamental change to how we prepare British Columbians for the jobs of tomorrow.
The Skills and Training Plan is the result of numerous conversations with industry, employers and post-secondary institutions. To find their needs, conversations took place through regional workforce tables, sector-based tables and through one-on-one conversations.
The plan ensures British Columbians can take advantage of the incredible job opportunities today and in the years ahead, and help address the rising shortage of workers.
There are resources and support available to British Columbians to get the skills required to meet our province’s future needs and enjoy a great career in the trades.
