Reporting on Green Skills and Sustainable Economic Growth

Given the increasing demand for green skills in a variety of sectors, and for education that is focused on sustainable development, both at home and abroad, CICan commissioned a comprehensive report on the topic. Titled Green Skills for Sustainable Economic Growth, the report released in September examines the capacity of Canadian colleges and institutes to contribute to, and partner in, what is now widely referred to as the “greening” of post-secondary education.

The findings of the report were shared with a variety of partners, and also informed CICan’s advocacy efforts, including a submission to Natural Resources Canada.
