With the sector facing an impending shortage of skilled workers, Electricity Human Resources Canada initiated a comprehensive one-year research project. Its purpose was to review best practices for industry recruitment and employee integration within the electricity and renewable energy sectors.
A national steering committee composed of industry, government and education stakeholders headed the project.
Results of the Project
After extensive information gathering, research, discussion and debate by a broad cross-section of the electricity sector, a final report was completed in March 2008.
Generating Solutions: Review of Foreign Credential Recognition in Canada’s Electricity Sector emphasizes the necessity for a comprehensive strategy to enable employers to more readily access a labour pool of workers with foreign credentials.
