Centre for Employment Innovation


The Centre for Employment Innovation (CEI) at St. Francis Xavier (StFX) University provides leadership, conducts research, fosters exemplary practices, and encourages collaboration in the development and delivery of employment services across Nova Scotia.

Through engagement and participatory research activities with its partners, the CEI works to build capacity, strengthen governance, enhance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and increase the quality and effectiveness of employment services across the province, in order to foster a more skilled, resilient and productive workforce.

The CEI is an important component of the career development and employment services ecosystem in Nova Scotia. As part of a systems-focused approach to service excellence, the CEI conducts its activities in collaboration with the eighteen community-based Nova Scotia Works employment services providers, the Nova Scotia Career Development Association (NSCDA), and the Province of Nova Scotia’s Department of Labour and Advanced Education.

The CEI and its system partners value the importance of employers to the employment ecosystem, working with them to determine their needs and strengths, while also providing the supports required to create safe, welcoming and inclusive workplaces. Emphasizing equity, transparency, and accountability in all of its innovative partnerships and diverse advisory board, its pilot and demonstration projects, and its rapidly growing applied research agenda, the CEI works to ensure that all Nova Scotians have access to high quality, evidence-based, and people-centered employment services and supports.
