Event description

Description

Join us! Sheridan College, The Oakville Community Foundation are building on the successful work to date of Vital Signs™ by providing an opportunity to use the power of creativity to unlock solutions for improving access to food in Halton Region.​ This work is being done as part of The Community Ideas Factory multi-year Social Science and Humanities Research Council Innovation Grant. Why the CPS?

The CPS allows the employment services sector from across Halton Region to come together in a facilitated research session, led by Sheridan College.

Those with lived experience participated in an online survey in October to identify needs and opportunities in the employment sector, and this session, for agencies will work on how to integrate solutions identified by our neighbors. The goal of CPS is to help unlock charitable dollars for new, creative, innovative, and collaborative funding applications that will address the needs of Halton's most vulnerable individuals in a holistic, coordinated, and effective manner.

Why Participate? This event will allow the employment services sector from across Halton to delve into some actionable solutions to the growing issue of unemployment in Halton, and will provide the structured research to create immediate and long term solutions.

We would like to invite you to participate in a CPS session, as part of the “Community Ideas Factory” project; a project being undertaken as part of a Social Science and Humanities Research Council Community Innovation Fund. This Creative Problem Solving Facilitation is being conducted by Drs. Michael McNamara and Sara Cumming of Sheridan College on behalf of our community partners, the Oakville Community Foundation.
