A Proposed British Columbia Screen-based Media Industry Human Resource Strategy

Over the last year, a committee comprised of representatives of Film & TV, Animation and Visual Effects, and Video Games sectors in British Columbia have been investigating workforce issues and needs in the Screen-Based Media Industry.  Liz Shorten has participated in this process representing CMPA-BC. We are pleased to announce that we have completed a proposed Human Resource Strategy that we intend to consult with you on in early 2011.

With the support of the BC Ministry Regional Economic and Skills Development, the BC Screen-Based Media Industry Human Resource Committee, first undertook research to understand current and future workforce skill gaps in the three sectors. Over the last three months, using the research as a foundation, we have been working on an industry strategy to address our collective human resource challenges.

One of the key reasons for our combined success in this industry is the depth and breadth of our talent. To continue to thrive in a very competitive industry, we must ensure that we have an adequate supply of talent to meet the demands of current and predicted growth. This human resource strategy is intended to set a course of action to address the critical challenges we all face together.

The vision of the proposed HR Strategy is supporting the industry as “a worldwide leader in high value, screen-based entertainment.”

In early 2011 we will be inviting key stakeholders to participate in roundtable meetings so that feedback can be provided on the strategy, and to seek input on and support for making the HR Strategy a reality.
