Sareena Hopkins of the Canadian Career Development Foundation shared a short summary of the 3-year community-based research project.

The NL Workforce Innovators Roundtable 2021 was a virtual event held on October 5, 2021 to give Research Proponents the opportunity to provide updates on their NLWIC-funded Research Projects.

NLWIC provides proposal-based funding for applied research projects that test innovative approaches to address labour market challenges and opportunities and improve outcomes in Newfoundland and Labrador. NLWIC’s goal is to promote the research, testing and sharing of ideas and models of innovation in workforce development that will positively impact employability, employment and entrepreneurship within the province’s workforce and particularly underrepresented groups. Funding is provided by the Department of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills (IPGS) under the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Market Development Agreement.
