The Industry Coordinating Committee was created to ensure the successful implementation of the Skills Task Force report, All the Skills to Succeed, released May, 2007. Through a partnership between business, labour, industry, education, the Provincial Government and non-governmental agencies, progress has been made on a large portion of the objectives suggested by the Skills Task Force.
The Industry Coordinating Committee is dedicated to working towards the completion of the 50 recommendations for government, business, industry, labour and education as suggested by the Skills Task Force report. Implementation of these action items are monitored by the ICC. The ultimate goal is to identify needs in the workforce, look at the ability to meet those needs, and identify what must be done to fill current and anticipated shortages in skilled labour.

Upon its release in May 2007 the Skills Task Force report, All the Skills to Succeed has had significant progress in the updating and implementation of the Action Plan that was set fourth by the Skills Task Force.
An Industry Coordinating Committee Progress Report was developed to keep stakeholders and the general public informed and aware of the tools and supports available to participate actively in our economic opportunities.
Progress Report – Coming Soon!
The Action Plan is a set of 50 recommendations/action items identified by the Newfoundland and Labrador Skills Task Force to ensure that Newfoundland and Labrador’s labour force is poised and ready to meet the large-scale development projects.
There are a total of 50 recommendations/action items contained in the report:
- 23 for Government: new/modified programs/services
- 9 for Business/Industry: largely buy-in and best efforts
- 8 for Labour: largely buy-in and best efforts
- 10 for Other Stakeholders
Government, through the budget process, has already taken many steps that are related to recommendations in the Action Plan.
The ICC will not only oversee implementation of the Action Plan, but also identify the specific skill needs of industry and coordinate timely responses to meet them.
The Skills Task Force considers each of its recommendations to be essential to this province’s long term goals but it also recognizes that some action items have a more immediate and strategic priority.
