AB Economic Recovery Task Force issue preliminary recommendations

July 27, 2020
The Alberta Colleges Economic Recovery Task Force has released 15 initial recommendations regarding how AB’s colleges can support and expedite local, provincial, and national economic recovery amid the pandemic. The Task Force’s recommendations focus on four key areas: attaining and analyzing workforce data; developing and implementing micro-credentialing; designing and delivering work-integrated learning; and innovating Canadian higher education by redefining the roles of AB colleges in the provincial ecosystem. “Alberta’s colleges have always been leaders in their regions supporting local research and innovation while meeting local business and industry needs,” said Grande Prairie Regional College President Robert Murray. “It is imperative Alberta’s colleges are embedded in federal, provincial, and local economic recovery through education and skills development.” GPRC | GPRC (Recommendations) (AB)
