Not your usual candidate forum.
‘Decent Work For All’ offers you a chance to tell local candidates what’s important to you about finding and keeping a good job. All Candidates from the Courtenay/Comox and Mid-Island ridings have been invited as ‘Guest Listeners’ and will be offered a short opportunity to speak in response to what they have heard.
Your participation is important. With your presence we can provide local leadership related to both the current need for decent work in our community as well as looking forward at creating long term sustainable jobs and economic growth.

The evening promises to offer engaging and unique insights into the challenges job seekers face today, what forward thinking employers are doing to create sustainable jobs, the future of policy and post secondary education .
