Canada’s economic success is deeply rooted in the excellence of our public education system and a diverse, skilled labour force. As the global competition for talent intensifies, succeeding and prospering in the 21st century will require a broad national effort to strengthen our human capital advantage.

The Council’s work on jobs and skills includes:

  • Deepening collaboration between post-secondary institutions and employers
  • Encouraging immigration policies to attract and retain the best and brightest
  • Sharing best practices among employers on training, hiring and skill development
