In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce has developed the Training & Employment Network (TEN) to provide support to communities and companies to integrate Indigenous. immigrants, students and youth workers and women workers into the local workforce. the TEN is funded through the Western Economic diversification (WED) and administered by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce. through the TEN, the Kindersley Chamber of Commerce will receive funding to develop and implement a Community Action Plan that identifies gaps in regional labour markets and create opportunities for employers and workers. the intent of the TEN is to provide clear and locally coordinated pathways for workers to be identified, as well as to present learning opportunities to enhance skills using a combination of existing and new training for employers.
The Kindersley Chamber of Commerce has chosen to focus on student and youth workers and entrepreneurship. We have been conducting a series of interviews with local successful business owners as well as Saskatchewan celebrities to share their story about how they became successful and how they overcame obstacles in their path. Our goal is to have more younger people start a business or maybe take over an existing business from someone who is looking to retire.
