3 reports that caught our eye this week

Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three that we found interesting this week:

Labour Market Experiences of First Nations people living off reserve: Key findings from the 2017 Aboriginal Peoples Survey (Statistics Canada)

This report is one of many documents Statistics Canada produced related to the 2017 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. Among the key findings:

  • 11% of employed First Nations people living off reserve were self-employed
  • Nearly one-third worked part-time because full-time work is not available
  • Almost two-thirds (63%) of unemployed First Nations people living off reserve reported that a shortage of jobs had caused them difficulty in finding work
ICTC’s Perspectives on a Data Economy Strategy (Information and Communications Technology Council)

ICTC’s labour market information predicts that there will be a need to fill 216,000 critical ICT positions by 2021. This report asserts that carving a carefully designed “National Data Strategy” for Canada is an important impetus for signalling Canada’s aspirations in this space and setting the stage for investment, growth and social prosperity

Pay As You Go? (The Sutton Trust)

This report analyzes graduate internship pay, access and quality in the UK, offering recommendations on how to ensure the best internships are open to all young people. Although the report’s statistics are UK-specific, the trends and recommendations it highlights will likely be of interest to a broader audience.
