Saskatchewan Urban Training Needs Assessment Report, 2003.
Saskatchewan Inst. of Applied Science and Technology, Saskatoon.
As part of an annual program planning process, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) conducts a number of formal and informal consultations with various SIAST stakeholders in order to identify and research future program training needs in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. This Saskatchewan Urban Training Needs Assessment Report (SUTNA) 2003 was produced following the compilation of all research conducted during the spring. The 2001 Census year population of Saskatchewan was 978,933, which is a decline of 11,305 people from the 1996 Census. Saskatchewan has a greater proportion of the population in the 0-14, 15-24, and 65 and older population than does the rest of Canada. The greater abundance of population aged 0-24 should bode well for the province in light of the pending labor shortages expected in the near future. The SUTNA 2003 report is divided into three categories: (1) Demographic and Economic Information, reports on data regarding labor market information and economic activities and trends; (2) Summary of Training Needs Assessment Industry Consultations, reports on the primary research obtained from stakeholder consultations; and (3) Summaries of Relevant Studies and Reports, records the summaries of the sector partnership studies that have been completed within the last year. Research instrument appended. (Contains 68 references.) (NB)
