Our Work Now
ASPECT provides leadership, professional development, advocacy and representation support of community-based workforce development service providers. Our members are leading experts in the delivery of career training programs to improve chances of employability and job retention for their clients. The focus is always on making our communities sustainable by promoting and increasing the value of using local people who understand the market and can deliver the needed training and services.
Our work also focuses on capacity building for our sector and we are also proud to work with our associate members, government and other stakeholders who also work to create meaningful employment in BC and Canada.
We are always working on innovative initiatives, like our ASPECT Summit, to continue to work towards our vision and mission.
