Like all of you, the NL Workforce Innovation Centre (NLWIC) at the College of the North Atlantic (CNA) has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in accordance with government and CNA directives, acting to protect the safety and well-being of staff, our many stakeholders and their families. As we navigate these unchartered waters, we are trying to keep business as usual as much as possible as we work from home.

New Portal for Canadian Businesses
The Government of Canada launched a new site to provide updated resources for Canadian businesses to keep informed as COVID-19 is affecting their work, employees and families. Four key considerations for businesses:
  1. Support for employees
  2. Support for businesses
  3. Business travel and events
  4. Business in international markets

Like the iconic iceberg, there’s more than the eye can see when it comes to the research projects funded through NLWIC and to the workforce innovators in Newfoundland and Labrador who are leading them. So learn more from the links and follow us, follow our projects, engage @NLWIC #tipoftheiceberg or   download our brochure here. 
The WinSETT Centre’s Women in SETT Leadership Program has been delivered for eight years in Newfoundland and Labrador (2010-2018), through a partnership with WISE NL and company and university sponsorship. It has delivered 30 interactive leadership workshops during this time, and about 400 women from many different workplaces throughout the province have participated in the program.
Newfoundland and Labrador has the highest number of working aged people without a high school diploma at 15.7% compared to the national average of 11.5% (Literacy and Institutional Services Division, Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, 2018). Sixty percent of the population of our province live in a rural area. These people have more difficulty accessing education than their urban counterparts (Simms & Greenwood, 2017).
