Colleges and Institutes Canada

Bringing a college and institute perspective to the Future Skills Council

Colleges and institutes across the country will benefit from a strong and passionate voice on the newly created Future Skills Council, as CICan CEO Denise Amyot was named as one of its 15 members.

The Council will advise government and inform the priorities of the new Future Skills Centre which was launched on February 14 by the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, along with the Honourable Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance. Operated by a consortium led by Ryerson University, the Future Skills Centre will support projects across Canada and be responsive to regional differences. It will operate at arm’s length from government and has been mandated to develop, test and rigorously measure new approaches to skills assessment and development.
