An innovative and practical workforce project

unlike any other in Canada.

About Us

Co-chaired by the Alberta Chambers of Commerce (ACC) and the Alberta Post-Secondary Network (APSN), the Talent Development Task Force brings together the province’s business community and top educational institutions to help students be career ready and start businesses to contribute to a skilled Alberta workforce well into the future.

The three-year project, now entering its third year, is a stool built on three strategic legs: business; post-secondary institutions; and government.

Funded by PrairiesCan; Alberta Jobs, Economy and Trade; and Mitacs, the project will help align post-secondary programming to the needs of employers. It is developing a strategy to allow employers to connect with post-secondary students across Alberta to form a mutually beneficial relationship that will not only help individual students and businesses flourish but promote economic growth province-wide.
