Cardus president to join Canadian delegation to Europe


Cardus president Michael Van Pelt will join Minister Jason Kenney as part of a delegation to Germany and the UK to learn about and share best practices on trades and skills development.

The invitation follows on the heels of a conference held by Cardus in January in Toronto which brought together leaders in construction, resource development, labour, and government, to explore solutions to the economic and social concerns brought about by Canada's skilled labour shortage. Cardus's work on labour has focused on the broader social frameworks in which skilled trades are developed, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss these matters with industry partners in Germany and the UK.
