Bridging the Urban-Rural Divide in Canada
Prime Ministers of Canada Fellow Project
Canadians’ needs for skills training and education are changing quickly. Through Skills Next, the Public Policy Forum and the Future Skills Centre are publishing 10 research papers on the state of the skills and education ecosystem in Canada. These papers will present the current knowledge on important issues and identify under-researched opportunities for policymakers to explore.
Skills Next will help the Future Skills Centre and research, policy and practice leaders better understand skills issues that require a renewed focus. Topics include the return on investment for industry spending on workforce development, tech-enabled retraining models, barriers to inclusion for specific populations, and a global survey of policy innovations in other jurisdictions. Reports will be released in autumn of 2019.
More to come.
Skills Next is funded by the Government of Canada’s Future Skills Centre.
