Human Resources, Talent & Training are the driving forces behind many of our activities and programs. Although our lobbying efforts, as well as the information and advice we offer are important, these programs ultimately do the most to help our industry grow and thrive. Our training initiatives assist firms every step of the way, from identification to application.
CAF is dedicated to identifying and eliminating skills gaps in the Canadian fashion industry. We do this through partnerships with international research bodies, allowing us to benchmark Canadian priorities with the rest of the world. We also help boost the amount of resources available to apparel companies through our various funding programs for wage subsidies and other training initiatives. This frees up company resources, allowing you to devote more attention to human resources and training.
Our programming assists firms across all areas of the apparel sector at every level, from administration to production. Our informative webinars, plus the information we provide in our members-only updates, help top-level employees and management identify their most pressing training issues. Our close relationship with government agencies and other international partners like The Mekong Club, Human Solutions and Alvanon puts us in a unique position to provide accurate advice for finding and implementing solutions.
After these issues and skills gaps have been identified, we transform that information into practical educational tools and programming, allowing companies to apply it in their day-to-day operations. These can range from webinars or seminars to full-day bootcamps.
Our training and recruitment initiatives continue to secure tangible benefits for the Canadian apparel industry. Some of our most successful projects to date include:
