Surrey Board of Trade talks about Education Investments in Surrey with Minister Bond and Minister Fassbender

The Surrey Board of Trade will be hosting its Business and Education Dialogue. Join us as we discuss investments in Surrey education necessary for the productivity of our businesses. As we head into an era of skills shortages, it is imperative that industry needs are tied to the school curriculum's (both at the elementary/high school and post-secondary levels). Without the proper training of youth, businesses will be forced to close as current skilled workers retire.

Featuring for the first time together:
Shirley Bond, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, and Minister Responsible for Labour
Peter Fassbender, Minister of Education
Minister Fassbender will also be representing the Minister of Advanced Education, Amrik Virk, who was unable to attend due to holidays.

A question and answer period will be included in the program.

Event Location: Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel (Fraser Room) - 15269 104 Avenue, Surrey

Date/Time Information: Thursday April 24, 2014
Registration: 2:30 pm
Program: 3:00 pm  - 4:30 pm

Please RSVP to Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.
