Moved by Liberal Party of Canada (Newfoundland and Labrador)

WHEREAS:

  • an educated labour force is critical for economic development, developing new industries, and creating jobs;
  • many rural regions of Canada face a shortage of educated labourers in necessary sectors;
  • diversification of industries and sources of employment is important for sustainable economic growth, particularly in rural regions;
  • such diverse industries and sources of employment require specialized skills

BE IT RESOLVED the Liberal Party of Canada call on the Government of Canada to:

  • identify potential industries for economic diversification and identify labour needs for those industries;
  • increase support for post-secondary education in areas of identified labour needs
