Building Canada’s Cleantech Workforce: Opportunities and Challenges

Building Canada’s Cleantech Workforce: Opportunities and Challenges

The market for Canada's clean technology sector may have grown significantly in recent years. This potential growth could stem from increasing global demand for cleantech solutions and the uptick in private and public investments available to Canadian researchers, developers, producers and adopters.

Cleantech activities and jobs have found their way into industries and jobs across Canada. While economic and workforce data is regularly tracked among cleantech developers and producers, data to encapsulate the whole economy, with every aspect of the supply chain included, is sporadic and quite limited.

This webinar will discuss:

  • global and Canadian trends in cleantech activity
  • ECO Canada’s definitional framework for cleantech, the sector and its workforce
  • business and HR insights from a survey of 81 businesses active in the cleantech industry; and
  • key considerations to address labour market opportunities and challenges for the sector.
