Workforce Development Committee

Helping businesses in Edmonton by advocating on behalf of our members to positively influence decisions made by all levels of government.

Edmonton Chamber members interested in workforce development issues focus their expertise on crafting recommendations for the Edmonton Chamber that identify the most effective advocacy, lobbying and public education efforts our organization can undertake. This ensures our members have the skilled, educated workforce they need to meet current demands and support future growth. Internal committee recommendations are actively undertaken. Developed policy positions are submitted to appropriate levels of government for further review in order to vocalize member concerns and influence the impact of government decisions on business. Additionally, each year, the Edmonton Chamber has the unique opportunity to submit policies for consideration and potential approval to both the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce. During the review process, members of the Workforce Development task force are actively engaged in communicating the best outcomes for Edmonton Chamber members on specific policies going forward for debate.

This volunteer task force consists of a remarkable team of individuals that actively initiate positive change on behalf of business in Edmonton.

Interested in joining our Workforce Development task force? The Edmonton Chamber is always looking for valuable members with unique strengths to join our volunteer team.
