Defining the Future of Tourism Skills: Register Now for BC Consultation Event

Future Skills Framework LogoJoin Tourism HR Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of BC (TIABC) to discuss critical labour issues impacting the sector’s competitiveness. An industry consultation event will take place February 27, from 9:00 am to 11:30 am, at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver, leading into the 2019 BC Tourism Industry Conference.

Existing labour shortages are expected to worsen over the coming years and could be exacerbated if skills mismatches and employment gaps are not addressed. This session is a component of a much larger project that will see the development of a comprehensive Future Skills Framework. Its goal: to redress skills and labour mismatches and provide interactive resources that will assist job seekers, employers, educators, and governments to better understand the skills and competencies employers are looking for and assist job seekers in identifying the skills they have and how they relate to specific employment opportunities.

Out-of-town transportation costs (of up to $900) will be reimbursed for the first twenty participants, subject to approval.
