The technical and vocational education and training (TVET) sector has been significantly impacted by the Coronavirus crisis with students and institutions quickly needing to adapt to this new normal. As Canada and the world struggles through this disruption, higher education institutions need to find innovative ways to adapt to a new normal. Impact investing could be such an approach.
Join us in a discussion about improving learning and employment outcomes in Canada and abroad in the context of CICan’s burgeoning focus on innovation and impact investing, which seeks to foster greater collaboration between traditional partners such as governments, donors, and civil society partners, including the Canadian private sector.
