The Business Supports Working Group was developed to focus on the following objectives:

  • Aligning skill demands in the region;
  • Forecasting of people, skill, and training needs;
  • Addressing mobility barriers and opportunities;
  • Improving access to business supports;
  • Creating information products; and
  • Addressing recruitment and retention issues.


Supply chain opportunities are emerging in projects across Canada, as well as in the Atlantic Region. The Business Supports Working Group has partnered with Learnsphere Canada to develop, implement and evaluate an Atlantic-wide, bilingual supply chain training program. With funding from Employment and Social Development Canada, this training is aimed at helping high-growth Atlantic small-to-medium sized enterprises become better equipped to be part of the supply chain for major industrial and resource development projects now and in the future. Current sectors of focus for this training are Oceans and Defence, as well as Food and Beverage.
