SME Training and Development - Seminars, Workshops and Courses

SME TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in the Canadian economy. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, they account for 64% of all private sector employment and more than 82% of total employment in health, construction, forestry, tourism and hospitality sectors. 

The Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce, recognizing the expanding population and economic growth of the Yukon, saw a need for building the capacity of our SME Community. Partnering with local expertise the Chamber has developed a series of seminars, workshops and courses to assist SME's in acquiring the training that they need, both for employers and employees, to grow and take advantage of economic opportunities. 

Through the years the Chamber and its partners have worked to keep the training and development programs current. During the past few years there have been more than 140 businesses each year taking advantage of the programs.

Thank you to the funding from the Government of Yukon Department of Economic Development and Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor), Chamber members can take part in these workshops and only pay a fraction of the cost.
