MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC), in conjunction with the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC), has established a Supply Chain Affinity Group, comprising members of the college/institute and post-secondary-education community who share a focus on the supply chain sector.
Members of ACCC Affinity Groups become part of an electronic network and listserve, which allows them to share information concerning key issues, exchange ideas and resources, and work together to develop joint national training programs across the country. The collaboration between ACCCs Supply Chain Affinity Group and the CSCSC will benefit both Canadian industry and Canadian colleges/institutes in that the CSCSC facilitates the involvement of industry and post-secondary institutions in a pan-Canadian perspective on skills and knowledge requirements.
The Supply Chain Affinity Group currently includes 55 representatives in 28 colleges and institutes across Canada. It works with the CSCSC primarily through a Coordinating Committee that includes one representative from each of six regions across Canada: British Columbia/Yukon, Alberta/Northwest Territories, Manitoba/Saskatchewan/Nunavut, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic. The Coordinating Committee will work with CSCSCs research committee to facilitate progress on common issues and joint projects.
