Sheridan College Hosts Free Investing in Innovation Seminar for Employers in Ontario

Our partners at Sheridan College are hosting an investing in innovation seminar for manufacturers in Ontario in the first week of February.

Below is the information from Sheridan College about the event:

Ontario manufacturers invited to Investing in Innovation seminar

Training grants being offered by Yves Landry Foundation

  
Manufacturing companies are invited to attend a free information session on how to improve the way you innovate in the heat of a recession. Process Improvement/Lean/Six Sigma consultant and Professor Michael Kukhta will conduct a 1-hour seminar on how to develop the tools and the mindset for keeping innovation alive in your organization during a slowing economy.

Those companies that attend the event will learn about special grants being offered to Ontario manufacturers by the Yves Landry Foundation. Businesses are eligible to receive up to $50,000 to support new training initiatives or the re-training of existing personnel.

“We know that many Canadian businesses in the manufacturing sector are coping with skilled labour shortages,” said Karen Brearley, Executive Director of the Yves Landry Foundation. “These grants are our way of helping companies invest in technological education and skills training.”
