The key to global business success rests on workforce skills and competitive costs - two areas in which Canada, and Ontario in particular, excel. Growing knowledge-based industries, whether in advanced manufacturing, IT development, biotech or contact centre services, need access to the large pool of educated, skilled and reliable workers in Ontario.
The Bluewater Energy Park regional workforce is well educated. A higher proportion of the Ontario workforce has post-secondary education than in any G7 country. A network of 20 universities and 24 vocational colleges trains students in every field, from the skilled trades to the most advanced areas of science, engineering and business.
