Future Skills Centre


The Future Skills Centre is a centre for innovation and applied research. It is independent from the Government of Canada. Ryerson University, the Conference Board of Canada and Blueprint work together to operate the centre.

The Future Skills Centre carries out research to understand future skills issues and fill research gaps. It also funds and partners with different groups to lead innovation projects across Canada. These projects test new ways to deliver skills training and assessment and support policy making in the area of workforce development. The centre aims to identify what works for Canadians to succeed in the future of work.

Organizations eligible to partner with the centre include:

  • provincial and territorial governments
  • Indigenous governments and organizations
  • industry organizations
  • labour organizations
  • education and training institutions, and
  • not-for-profit organizations


With a focus on underrepresented and disadvantaged Canadians, the centre works to:  

  • help Canadians make informed training decisions by understanding the skills needed now and in the future
  • help Canadians develop the skills they need to adapt and succeed in the workplace by increasing access to quality training, and
  • share results and best practices to support skills investment decisions and policy
