The global economy is evolving. Developing countries, from China to Brazil, are making unprecedented investments in education and training. Countries that were once poor and low-skilled are rapidly moving up the value chain, producing increasing numbers of highly educated workers.

Succeeding and prospering in the 21st century will require a broad national effort to strengthen Canada’s human capital advantage. In 2013, the Business Council launched Taking Action for Canada: Jobs and Skills for the 21st century. Since then, the Council has continued its work on ensuring Canada can be home to the world’s most dynamic and innovative workforce.
