In November 2005, the province of Ontario and the federal government signed two historic agreements – the Canada-
Ontario Labour Market Development Agreement and the Canada-Ontario Labour Market Partnership Agreement. One
year later, on Nov. 24, 2006, key labour market stakeholders, including users, delivery agents and government came together
to collectively take stock of progress and to explore how partners can help governments move forward with successfully
implementing the agreements.
The symposium, Developing Skills through Partnerships, was co-hosted by Colleges Ontario, the Ontario Chamber of
Commerce, ONESTEP, and the Canadian Policy Research Networks.
