The Conestoga Effect: Release of the 2023 economic and social impact report

February 13, 2024 | 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. | Virtual event

According to a new study conducted by economist Larry Smith, Conestoga College is “indispensable to the prosperity of the local community by helping both younger and older workers adapt to the changes and challenges of the economic environment.”

The report, Conestoga: Adapting for Prosperity III, provides an update of studies released first in 2003 and again in 2010 and 2016. It examines the impact of the institution on the local community and its economy, and evaluates recent growth in terms of meeting the region’s increasing need for a highly skilled labour force.

Join this conversation via livestream with President Tibbits and Larry Smith as they discuss key findings from the report.

The discussion will be moderated by Rachel Schoutsen, a Conestoga Alumni of Distinction honouree and host with the Weather Network. 

All employees and community members are welcome.
