The applied science and engineering sector is facing a significant skills shortage of over 31,000 workers over the next ten years and is looking for new talent pools to address this labour market supply gap. A new project being conducted by ASTTBC is designed to consult with employers on strategies to support occupational pathways for persons with disabilities interested in careers in this high-demand, high-growth sector.
In this webinar, learn how ASTTBC has engaged employers and other stakeholders in this consultation as well as some of the various strategies proposed to support the successful integration of persons with diverse abilities into this important sector of the BC Economy.
ASTTBC is the regulatory professional association that certifies technologists, technicians and technical specialists across BC. This Labour Market Partnership project is funded by the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation’s Community and Employer Partnership Fund.
