Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) works closely with educators across the country to ensure a steady transition for students from learning into careers. In our convening role, we’re able to facilitate dialogue between employers, unions, government and educators. By being proactive in these discussions, we’re better able to align industry with education and keep our labour force in appropriate supply with world-class skills.
As part of this dialogue and relationship, EHRC has assembled an Academic Advisory Group to solicit input from a diverse group of stakeholders representative of Canada’s educational landscape. The Academic Advisory Group generously provides their time and insight to ensure that our educational programs are in line with provincial standards and curriculum. Additionally, the Academic Advisory Group helps navigate educational solutions to industry challenges.
