Request For Proposals

Building Talent Pathways for a Net Zero Economy

Business + Higher Education Roundtable

The Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) is seeking proposals to provide funding to organizations to create new work-integrated learning opportunities for young people to develop green skills and succeed in careers that contribute to Canada's net zero economy.

NLWIC has collaborated with BHER in the past, and we would both like to see more proposals from Newfoundland and Labrador!

The deadline for applications is December 5, 2022 at 11:59 EST.

Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals in one of the following priority areas:

  • Green talent development in priority sectors such as manufacturing and utilities, construction, transportation, clean energy, and carbon capture, usage, and storage.

  • Supporting WIL-based solutions to the green talent needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.

  • Green talent development in rural, remote, and Northern Communities.

  • Improving foundational green skills required across the workforce.

BHER has set a goal to create accessible and inclusive pathways to green jobs through work-integrated learning. They believe in a strategic and graceful transition to a net zero economy. A major component of this transformation will be equipping young people with the green skills they need to succeed in their careers and support the transition to net zero.

Established in 2017 by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and administered by College of the North Atlantic, NL Workforce Innovation Centre (NLWIC) has a provincial mandate to provide a coordinated, central point of access to engage all labour market stakeholders about challenges, opportunities and best practices in workforce development.

NLWIC’s goal is to promote the research, testing and sharing of ideas and models of innovation in workforce development that will positively impact employability, employment and entrepreneurship within the province’s labour force and particularly underrepresented groups. Funding for NLWIC is provided by the Department of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills (IPGS) under the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Market Development Agreement.
