Filling the void
The Conference Board of Canada expected that there would be $347 billion of investment from 2012 until 2030 to renew Canada's aging electricity infrastructure and increase power generation. Therefore, it projected that employment in this energy sector would increase by an average of 156,000 jobs in 20 years.
The Electricity Sector Council predicts that about half of the people in this sector will be leaving the industry within the next five years. The Petroleum HR Council also estimates an additional 15,000 workers will be needed Canada-wide over the next four years. What remains is a real shortage for skilled employees.
In order to help address the projected shortage of workers in the electricity industry and in response to the growing demands of the sector, the Centre for Urban Energy has developed a suite of educational programs and professional development opportunities.
Our courses, workshops and seminar series are tailored to those already in the energy industry looking to advance into management or leadership roles or those hoping to break into the industry. They are always innovative, forward-looking and led by high-calibre instructors.
