Conclusion: Shared Responsibility Leads to Competitive Communities
“As Ontario moves towards strengthening the linkages between workforce literacy and basic skills and employer demand is essential. We need to move beyond our traditional planning approaches and create locally-driven, joined-up partnership models that leverage our existing infrastructure and increase a level of shared responsibility. Through this enhanced level of shared responsibility we can use new tools, well-informed frameworks and overlapping intersections and interconnections to improve the way we coordinate and deliver services. When workforce planning boards and regional literacy networks strategically align their activities together, we are then better equipped to address our local workforce employment and training needs. This will make our communities more competitive, allow for industries to grow and provide more sustainable opportunities for all Ontarians.”
