Canadian employers – We want to hear your perspectives on micro-credentials!

We are inviting employers across Canada to participate in a study to inform workforce training and learning and gather perspectives on micro-credentials.

To participate, complete the 5–7-minute online survey by February 11, 2023. Your participation in this project is completely voluntary and survey submissions are anonymous.

The survey is now closed - thank you to all who participated. Stay tuned for project updates.

“Closing the Skills Gap: The Value of Micro-Credentials to Canadian Employers” is a project funded by the D2L Innovation Guild that aims to gain insight into Canadian employer’s familiarity with micro-credentials, determine how employers see micro-credentials playing a role in the professional development of their workforce, and what employers need to have confidence in the ability of micro-credentials to contribute to workforce development.

To participate, you must work for an employer based in Canada and be responsible for hiring, promoting and/or managing employees.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Micro-Credentials Project team.

This project has been reviewed by the Research Ethics Board for compliance with federal guidelines for research involving human participants (REB # 21-09-018).
