to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in
B.C.’s growing economy. The tour has had more than 200,000
participants so far, most recently in New Westminster.
B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint was recently spotlighted in the BC

re-engineering the provincial education and apprenticeship systems
so students and workers have the skills they need to be first in
