Our team is busy working on modifying the ways programming is delivered where we can. Some of our programming is still available to schools and is continuing to run without interruption.
SIEC runs a variety of programs that connect youth with career exploration opportunities. We worked with over 30,000 youth in the last year alone, 1,600 businesses and post-secondary representatives, and more than 1,000 educators and career practitioners.

Spotlight on Careers
From Our Executive Director
“We can all agree that there is no issue more vital to the future of Saskatchewan business than workforce development. If we strive for a world-class economy, we require leading-edge employees and the very best entrepreneurs.
Yet, Canada’s approach to enriching this talent pool has been piecemeal at best. Interprovincial labour mobility remains stagnant, the average age of an indentured apprentice still hovers in the late-20s (resulting in nearly a decade of lost productivity), and immigration? We won’t even get into that.
Instead, our shared prosperity hinges on the ability to better nurture our workforce from within. And, to get there, we need a comprehensive youth-industry education strategy.”
