Business/Higher Education Roundtable

Launched in 2015 by the Business Council, the Business/Higher Education Roundtable represents some of Canada’s largest companies and leading post-secondary institutions. Although partnerships between higher education and industry have existed in other countries – including the U.K., U.S. and Australia – for decades, Canada has lacked a coordinated strategy to strengthen cooperation between employers and educators. Composed of leaders from the private sector, universities, colleges and polytechnics, the Roundtable works to help young Canadians transition from education to the workplace, strengthen research collaboration between industry and institutions, and help Canadian employers as they adapt to the economy of the future.
