This forum has encouraged provinces to form their own HRD Provincial Councils to be chaired by the Premiers, to tackle their unique challenges and report on the implementation of the HRD Strategy towards 2030, at the provincial level. Amongst other things the forum discusses, progress made by each province on the implementation of HRD initiatives and the strategy, for each quarter. The forum also provides a platform for all provinces to learn from each other and share critical problem solving practices where applicable.
