Investing in human capital is vital to the success of Canada’s green economy and is a shared responsibility among employers, workers, governments and educators. Workforce attraction, retention and development strategies and solutions help ensure an adequate supply of skilled workers to meet the environmental human resource needs of today and in the years to come.

  • Monitoring and responding to environmental workforce trends
  • Transitioning to a more digitized medium of learning
  • Employee retention through upskilling in both technical and soft skills
  • Facilitating succession planning
  • Diversifying candidates to include more women, youth, immigrants, and Indigenous peoples in the hiring process
