Peace region residents are invited to take part in a conversation about workforce development in rural Alberta later this week. The Alberta Rural Development Network is hosting the forum, which will include a full day of speakers, a panel discussion with Alberta’s Labour Minister Thomas Lukaszuk, culminating in a workshop for participants to share ideas and solutions. ARDN Executive Director Dee Ann Bernard says they plan to identify some possible projects from that workshop discussion.
“So we’re going to invite everybody there to come to this little session at the end to identify what they think are the priorities in workforce development, and we’re actually committing to taking all the proceeds from the conference, and using them to seed at least one of those projects for the future.”
Registration for the forum is $75 a person, and can be done online at www.ardn.ca.
