Global labour markets are undergoing massive change that will deeply affect the lives of working Canadians. Yet, Canada’s skills development infrastructure is simply not equipped to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
Ilse Treurnicht, former CEO of MaRS Discovery District and member of the Advisory Council on Economic Growth is rallying all parts of the Canadian economy to adapt to – and lead – the unprecedented changes in work and the workforce.
She is the co-author of the just-released report on Canadian skills development in a disrupted world. The report concludes that it is time to fundamentally rethink how we equip Canadians for the work dynamics of the future. Meeting this challenge will require a system-wide approach, and active collaboration between employers, citizens, educational institutions, and governments.
We must develop mechanisms that support Canadians on continuous-learning journeys throughout their lives.
At the event, we’ll be looking for your thoughts on how your sector, your industry, your organization and you as a human capital professional can help address this urgent issue.
|Ilse Treurnicht’s career spans scientific research, technology startups and growth companies, commercialization of academic discoveries, venture capital, innovation consulting, and public policy development. For the past 13 years, she has been the CEO of MaRS in Toronto, overseeing the development of the organization from a raw startup to a leading urban innovation hub. She holds a doctorate in chemistry from Oxford University, which she attended as a Rhodes Scholar.|
