There is an urgent focus to understand what skills workers will need to prosper and how Canada can both leverage and expand its current skills development infrastructure. The Future Skills Centre announced a new open Call for Proposals with a budget of $36 million over two years. The goal of this call is to test and evaluate new and emerging approaches that have the potential to generate actionable evidence about how to better equip Canadian workers with the skills required to navigate a fast-changing labour market.

Interested organizations should submit proposals that address one of these three questions:

● How can we best support Canadians facing labour market disruption to transition to new jobs or industries?

● How can employers be more effectively engaged in developing and delivering demand-driven solutions to skills gap challenges?

● How can skills development systems be optimized, building up the capacity of service providers and encouraging collaboration between organizations?
