Skills Development Fact Sheet: Up-Skilling for the Jobs of Tomorrow (2011)

In this document, the authors provide brief descriptions of a variety of programs developed by sector councils to help both employers and job-seekers prepare for the jobs of tomorrow. Sector councils are industry‐led partnerships that bring together representatives from business, labour, education, and other professional groups to address sector‐wide human resource issues on a national scale.

Among the programs featured in this document is a joint initiative between the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council and Junior Achievement Canada to give students information about jobs in the supply chain, which is a system of organizations, people, technology, activities, information and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer.

Other initiatives include a certification program for Parks Canada interpreters; the development of an online community to address human resources concerns in the mining sector; and the establishment of safety guidelines for movie production crews.

The document was prepared by The Alliance of Sector Councils (TASC), the coordinating body for more than 35 sector councils and sector‐like organizations in Canada. TASC’s goal is to ensure a cohesive approach to providing labour market solutions.
