Like the iconic iceberg, there’s more than the eye can see when it comes to NLWIC’s applied research and innovation project collaborations. The panel presentation, a collaboration of NLWIC, Immigration, Population Growth and Skills, the Future Skills Centre with Evaluator Blueprint and other partners will showcase NL as a continuous testbed of innovation in workforce development. The panel will take CICan attendees “below the surface” to explore the testing and evaluation of the design, action planning, and impacts of regional workforce development committees throughout the province as a new innovative workforce development model for Newfoundland and Labrador. The focus is collaborative action planning to address the most pressing workforce development issues and solutions to create and retain a diverse, inclusive, innovative and productive workforce in ten regions of the province to drive economic recovery and the health, well-being and prosperity of all labour market stakeholders in Newfoundland and Labrador.
