From November 1st to November 29th 2019, people across the Province had the opportunity to share ideas, input and feedback about Job Readiness and CleanBC. 

The Centre for Dialogue convened six focus groups across the Province in the following communities and/or regions: Fraser Valley, Haida Gwaii, Nanaimo, Saik'uz Nation, Fort Nelson and Cranbrook. This project was the first time that a focus group specifically for high school students took place within a provincial engagement. This workshop was hosted in Cranbrook. The provincial engagement also website hosted a discussion forum with four discussion questions and provided the opportunity for people to email in their ideas. Sixty-five people commented on the engagement website. Three formal submissions were recieved by email.

The thoughts shared by the focus groups and the online comments were analyzed and synthesized in "What We Heard" reports. Each focus group resulted in its own "What We Heard" report which was provided to the participants and to the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. This feedback will contribute to the CleanBC Jobs Readiness Plan and provide the foundation for CleanBC labour market planning taking place over the next year. The CleanBC Jobs Readiness Plan will identify opportunities arising from CleanBC for workers, industry and businesses across the Province.
