Learning & Professional Development

Our vision as an organization—the future we are working towards—is that of a society of strong, healthy individuals and families, and caring, inclusive communities strengthened by comprehensive, responsive, high-quality supports and services. To help us realize that vision, The Federation is committed to strengthening and supporting our members and BC’s community services sector more broadly through professional development, skill-building, networking, and leadership development opportunities.

Upcoming Learning Opportunities

Workshops will take place over the next few years in communities across the province. These topics are selected based on feedback from Federation members at conferences, from Leadership 2020 participants, through ongoing member outreach, and through the Social Services Labour Market Research Project. They also support The Federation’s ongoing goal of building a stronger and more sustainable community social services sector.
