Education is the mother of leadership. ~ Wendell L. Willkie

Education = Future Economic Prosperity

Future Economic Prosperity With the support of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, the Grand Valley Educational Society (GVES) is conducting a research project that focuses on the continued development of our local workforce. Research indicates that over 85% of employment opportunities will require some form of post secondary education and/or specialized training. This research project will be a comparative analysis of the current training and education available in Brantford-Brant against the training and educational needs of existing companies and organizations and skills training which will be a major attractor to future business, industry, organizations and associations.

Economic Impact Study

The Grand Valley Educational Society (GVES) is actively working with key community partners to commission an update to the "Economic Impact & Benchmarking Analysis of Laurier Brantford & Mohawk College on the City of Brantford, Brant County & Other Local Regions" released August 11, 2005.

Since the original study was released, there has been substantial growth, change and transition involving three post secondary institutions in the downtown core. We anticipate this report will provide a clear and current picture of the impact of post secondary education on our communities.

Brantford-Cambridge-Kitchener-Waterloo Transit Service

The Grand Valley Educational Society is working with key community partners to determine the feasibility of implementing this transit service. Given the substantial increase of post secondary presence in our downtown core and the current and projected student numbers, the GVES is confident this service will contribute substantially to our community access to not only post secondary education but also culture, recreation and sport related events and venues.
