A new group on Facebook has been launched to promote, share and increase workforce training and development opportunities in northern Manitoba. One of the group administrators and a representative for the Northern Manitoba Sector Council Liz Sousa explains the group is mainly for contractors, institutions, organizations, anyone that can encourage and share planned training and development opportunities and events. She says it also helps to seek feedback from industry to gauge what the workforce demand is and what is an upcoming demand so they can gauge what the workforce needs.
Sousa adds the group was created to address the needs of northern employers and further ensure the training of northern Manitobans in the north. The groups can be found by going to Facebook and searching for N-N-W-T-D.
