Tomorrow’s Workforce About a third of future jobs don’t exist today. What will the workforce of tomorrow have to deal with, and how will we prepare them for an unknown future? Liveable Communities – Urban Design True prosperity requires a community where all can thrive. Niagara must not only be a good place to do business, but a good place to live, no matter your background or your wealth Gamechangers Gamechangers can be loud and famous, or they can quietly change an entire industry or an economy behind the scenes. What are those gamechangers, and what do they mean for the businesses of today and tomorrow? This event is hosted by the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce.

Creating a Workplace Mental Health Strategy: From Start to Impact @ Online
Nov 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Want to create a workplace mental health strategy but don’t know where to start? Then this webinar is for you! Developing a plan to improve employee mental well-being signals how much an employer values its people, helps reduce stigma, and creates a culture of support – all of which have proven benefits for employees and the organization. It can be as straightforward as planning for information-sharing, training, regular employee check-ins, and reviewing your benefits plan. During the webinar, you’ll hear a small and medium-sized employer share their approaches, impact and insights into creating and implementing their mental health strategies. Join this webinar to hear from Liz Horvath Manager, Workplace Mental Health, Mental Health First Aid and Opening Minds, Mental Health Commission of Canada ; Sylvie Latulippe, Director, Wellness and Employee Relations, Human Resources, Bank of Canada; and Addie Greco-Sanchez, President, AGS Rehab to gain a better understanding of this topic. This webinar is hosted by the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
