Centre for Employment Innovation

The Centre for Employment Innovation (CEI) at St. Francis Xavier (StFX) University will provide leadership, foster best practices, conduct research and encourage collaboration in the development and delivery of employment services across Nova Scotia. Operating within and supported by the StFX Extension Department and working in partnership with government, service providers, community agencies and researchers, it will bring people and knowledge together to strengthen the quality and effectiveness of employment services across the province in order to foster a skilled, resilient and productive workforce.

The work of the CEI will help change the socio-economic development narrative in communities from a focus on weaknesses and deficits to an emphasis on strengths, opportunities and assets. Further, the CEI will compliment the innovation and enterprise efforts currently underway within StFX Extension that aim to encourage social innovation, entrepreneurship and enterprise activities across Nova Scotia.
