To address the growing interest and need for sector-focused workforce development in Toronto, in 2016 the Metcalf Foundation established the Toronto Sector Skills Academy in partnership with the highly regarded Aspen Institute. This leadership program is the first of its kind in Canada. Participants in the Toronto Sector Skills Academy become Aspen Economic Opportunity Fellows and work with peers from a variety of organizations. Fellows attend three retreats and three workshops over a 10-month period. Led by experts drawn from across North America, participants engage in experiential learning with practical applications, acquire new skills to explore and enable sectoral workforce strategies. Partnerships are strengthened and networks broadened.
Applications will be accepted until February 16, 2018.
