Who We Are
Skills Council of Canada (SCC) is an Ottawa-based education technology organization that supports all Canadians in accessing skill-development resources and tools to become job ready. With a focus on the more vulnerable and underserved groups across Canada such as racialized youth, students, the underemployed, unemployed and their communities, SCC achieves its objectives through a collaborative partner network.
By working with industry leaders and education experts across the country, SCC fosters opportunities for growth and employment through:
“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.”
Skills Council of Canada’s leadership has been focused on contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals for many years. Education is the foundation that supports all SDGs and why we have made it the foundation of all our work.
