This year’s conference brings together leaders in business, education, labour and industry to explore the skills that will be needed in the next five to ten years.
British Columbia has entered an ever increasing ‘Skills Shortage’, not a ‘Labour Shortage’ as some might hope. Competition for entry-level employment is extreme while many skilled jobs go unfilled. Baby-boomer retirements are expected to peak between 2019-2023 and workers with in-demand skills will be the ones who benefit the most.
