Project Description

In Montréal's evolving economic landscape, the 'Bridging the Digital Divide' project examines the potential of technology integration in skill training programs as a means to enhance employability among diverse populations. This study assesses the current state of digital literacy and access to technology, particularly in marginalized communities, and identifies barriers to digital inclusion. The project further develops a framework for embedding digital competencies in vocational training, aiming to improve the job-readiness of the workforce. Collaborations with local businesses, educational institutions, and policymakers aim to create a cohesive strategy that recognizes the importance of digital skills in contemporary and future job markets. This Knowledge Mobilization Plan proposes innovative approaches to curriculum design, pedagogy, and resource allocation to foster inclusive growth and prepare residents for a digital future.
