Developing Skills through Partnerships: Symposium Report
Colleges Ontario
In November 2005, the province of Ontario and the federal government signed two historic agreements--the Canada-Ontario Labour Market Development Agreement and the Canada-Ontario Labour Market Partnership Agreement. One year later, on Nov. 24, 2006, key labour market stakeholders, including users, delivery agents and government came together to collectively take stock of progress and to explore how partners can help governments move forward with successfully implementing the agreements. The symposium, "Developing Skills through Partnerships", was co-hosted by Colleges Ontario, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, ONESTEP, and the Canadian Policy Research Networks. The symposium was intended to raise awareness of the importance to Ontario's economic and social well-being of a highly skilled workforce and to help foster partnerships that will help to ensure Ontario has the structure and capacity to meet the needs of the 21st century economy. Participants were invited to engage in a dialogue on a longer-term (five-year) vision for Ontario's new client-centred training and employment system, and to identify next steps toward better partnerships and cooperation in building that system. This report presents the views of speakers and participants from more than 150 organizations from across Ontario.
