The Electricity Sector Council’s (ESC’s) 2011 Bright Futures in Canada Conference entitled “Innovative Solutions for a Sustainable Workforce” will be held at the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel from May 24-26, and EBMag will be there.

Bright Futures is the national conference dedicated to the electricity and renewable energy industry workforce. Within the next five years, says ESC, this sector will experience labour shortages due to the pending retirement of skilled workers and a massive regeneration of the electricity infrastructure. According to the projections of the ESC 2008 “Powering Up the Future Study”, electricity organizations will experience an annual shortfall of between 3000 and 4500 workers by 2012.

In an effort to meet the needs for a skilled, safe and sustainable workforce, the ESC’s 2011 Bright Futures in Canada Conference will provide industry stakeholders with innovative and practical solutions to the human resources challenges they face. The two-day, interactive event will feature notable speakers who will share the latest and most advanced initiatives designed to mitigate the current and future labour shortage.

Conference attendees will hear about ESC research and program initiatives, and gain ground on key human resource strategies to develop a skilled, safe and sustainable workforce now and in the future.
