"We learned labour attraction strategies, and strategies."

The first-ever "SPARK THE NORTH" event was successfully hosted by Community Futures Lesser Slave Lake Region in partnership with Big Lakes County, and Alberta Labour and Immigration.

The Labour Solutions Summit was held on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at Triangle Hall, in High Prairie, Alberta.

More than 50 business owners, executives, entrepreneurs, human resource professionals, and municipal leaders from different industries attended the event to receive the proven solutions needed to attract top talents and enhance workforce development. The guests included representation from Alberta Health Services, Northern Lakes College, public officials/councilors, and local business owners. They all positively said that they took away a lot of proven strategies, out-of-the-box ideas, ways to recruit, strategies, and methodologies that they can use in their organization.

The World Café was well-received by all the guests; they actively participated and went from group to group. Attendees took time to share their ideas on the topics presented by the Keynote Speakers Eric Termuende, Kristen Cumming, and Sheila Newel. Discussions took place on recruitment ideas, perks & benefits, challenges, and organizational cultures. CF staff collected this information and is planning to distribute the results to the attendees.

The success of the Labour Solutions Summit has 'sparked' Community Futures Lesser Slave Lake Region to plan an annual Spark The North event focusing on different economic and business challenges that are specific to operating businesses in our Northern Alberta region.
