2022 is the 25th anniversary of the Skills Centre, and it’s an appropriate moment to take stock of how far the Skills Centre has come since the organization was incorporated in 1997 and to plan for its future.
Our staff and board of directors have put in a tremendous effort to develop a new 5 year strategic plan for the organization. The new plan acknowledges the many challenges and triumphs that are part of our history and lays out an ambitious path for our future.
We will become even more responsive to the needs of our communities as we complete our mission to strengthen rural and industrial communities and workplaces through workforce skills development, training services, social development and poverty reduction programming.
We will strengthen our existing partnerships with all levels of government, businesses, civil society and the community, and we will seek to build new partnerships with more communities and groups that have been marginalized – especially Indigenous, immigrant or LGBTQ2S+ communities.
The future will be exciting, and we hope you will join us on the journey.
