What if everyone had a job that allowed them to take care of themselves and their families? What if no one had to choose between earning money and having time to have a life? What if people earning low wages had access to meaningful, career-track jobs that paid a living wage? What if our jobs actually enhanced our lives and made our neighbourhoods more vibrant and resilient? What if truly meaningful employment were the norm?
This kind of working world is the vision of the Thrive network. It stays aware of the trends and developments that can lead to the creation of meaningful work in our community. With a community economic development perspective, Thrive’s goal is for all Calgarians to have access to well paid jobs that enable them to use their skills and develop new ones.
