2020 Pre-Conference Forum for Colleges and Institutes Serving Rural, Remote, and Northern Communities
May 1, 2020 | 13:00 - 16:00Track: Pre-conference
Colleges and institutes support the social, cultural and economic development as well as skills development of rural, remote and northern communities which contribute to the Canadian economy. However, economic, demographic and institutional transformations are posing new challenges for these communities, and as such, the colleges and institutes must develop new innovative strategies and approaches at different levels including: delivery of training programs, creation of new partnerships, support of innovation through applied research, entrepreneurship mindset and attraction of new talent.
The Pre-Conference Forum will be an opportunity to:
- Explore, identify and share strategies, best practices and models that colleges and institutes could adapt and adopt to make their regional campuses sustainable;
- Learn from other communities and institutions about social innovation, economic development and entrepreneurship solutions from a sustainability standpoint.
