Upskilling Platform: OVIN Skills, Talent & Workforce Development

To meet workforce needs and to support economic recovery, OVIN is proposing the development of a made-in-Ontario Upskilling Platform for the automotive and mobility sector. This tool would support Ontario’s automotive and mobility talent pool in developing and building on new and existing skills that would support their growth in the workforce.

This Upskilling Platform will support Ontario-based automotive and mobility companies and employers to provide access to educational programs online, and target more micro-credential/micro-degree opportunities in order to upskill their employees and workforce to meet future skills-needs.The platform would have the added benefit of facilitating global access to these important resources, at a time when access to learning environments is increasingly challenging. This will enable wider access to Ontario training and educational programs to regions across Ontario and will facilitate the promotion of Ontario’s ecosystem to the global market.

Proposals are due September 30 at 12pm EDT.

Update: The Request for Proposal has been amended based on questions and feedback that we have received since the posting date, clarifying the scope of the project. Amendments can be found highlighted within the document and unless otherwise indicated, all other terms and conditions of the Request for Proposal remain the same.
