Skills, Talent and Knowledge Strategy

Skills, Talent and Knowledge Strategy

Manitoba's Skills, Talent and Knowledge Strategy provides strategic direction to publicly-funded post-secondary institutions and outlines actions needed to accelerate recovery, advance Manitoba's economy and promote positive outcomes. The strategy includes targeted actions to strengthen alignment between post-secondary institutions, immigration, training and employment services, and labour market needs.

We look forward to a collaborative approach, working with our partners across Manitoba, including:

  • Industry
  • Businesses
  • Community leaders and organizations
  • Educational institutions
  • Indigenous leaders

The strategy is a key deliverable from the 2018 Economic Growth Action Plan and 2019 Moving Manitoba Forward Guarantee . For more information visit the Manitoba Economic Growth Action Plan.

Our Vision

Manitobans will have the right skills, talent and knowledge to succeed in their careers, enjoy a high-quality life, strengthen their communities and grow the economy.

Our Engagement

The strategy was informed by robust stakeholder engagement, including:

  • Premier’s Economic Opportunities Advisory Board
  • Presidents of public, post-secondary institutions
  • Sector council partners
