Unleashing Canada’s Untapped Talent

Everyone needs to feel there is a place for them in the future economy. But without transition pathways to new employment, more and more people will find themselves stuck in declining industries with fewer and fewer options. By helping people adapt, upskill and transition into great careers in innovative sectors, Palette Skills helps companies compete globally and ensures that Canadians continue to prosper.

Scaling Impact

Building a National Ecosystem


Upskilling workers at the scale necessary requires an ecosystem-level approach. Palette Skills is taking the insights, models, and lessons we’ve learned over the past five years, and working with partners across the country to develop a new talent system that enables cross-sector career transitions through employer-led upskilling.


A Talent Pipeline for Growing Companies


We develop and deliver our own upskilling programs to drive impact, develop best practices, and test new approaches in helping connect employers to the talent they need.


We work with partners to strengthen and enable the development of their own industry-led upskilling programs, leveraging our insights and experience to support their success.
