The Conference Board of Canada

Organization Type

The Conference Board of Canada is a WIL product development partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER).

The Conference Board of Canada and BHER are currently working together to engage in a Canada-wide conversation about the role of work-integrated learning (WIL) in supporting recruitment, training and future talent needs during economic recovery. The consultations will be conducted through a series of online focus groups that will engage regional and national partners to advance small to medium enterprise participation in WIL. The focus groups will be held in two phases and will target key sectors with capacity for WIL. Phase 1 focus groups will begin in summer 2020 and Phase 2 consultations will be held early in the fall 2020. Learn more about this national dialogue and how to get involved here.
