January 2009 – October 2009
Industry need: Recent growth in bioenergy, biofuels and industrial sub-sectors meant employers needed skilled talent to strengthen their capacity. Job seekers wanting to enter this workforce needed to understand employers’ requirements.
Objective: To identify employer’s talent requirements and provide a comprehensive understanding of the industry and how its development impacts human resource considerations for Canada.
Supporting Project Leveraged: “Labour Market Information for the Biotechnology Industry” (2007-2009)
These findings led to the development of the “Manufacturing Skills Transfer” project to help fill the biomanufacturing skills shortage.
