The Challenge

Canada needs a new employment and training model. Even as billions are spent annually on employment and training programs, job seekers are not being trained in the skills required for success on the job. At the same time, employers are struggling to find suitable candidates to fill their open positions.

The SCP Approach

SCP’s approach to driving large-scale systems change combines collaboration, entrepreneurial spirit, and action-based learning. We test a number of different solutions to see what works and what doesn’t, and engage with partners who have the capacity to scale the most promising ideas. Instead of seeking to own a solution, we develop value propositions that large organizations want to invest in to bring about transformative impact.

Impact through Partnership

SCP is guided by where and how we can make the greatest difference. We’re committed to finding new models and forms of cooperation that can radically improve access to employment for those at a disadvantage. It’s only through our partnerships that we can achieve change on a larger scale.
