4 reports that caught our eye this week

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

Disability Policy: From Remedies to Rights (Maytree)

This report examines the Catch-22 people with disabilities face when they seek assistance: that the primary way many persons with disabilities gain independence is to demonstrate serious dependence. The report includes sections on authentic inclusion in education and employment.

A Different Ontario: Education – gains and gaps in attainment and earnings (Mowat Centre)

Almost three in 10 young Ontarians – and one in three young men in Ontario – are entering an increasingly demanding labour market without any post-secondary training or credentials. This is one of the main findings from a new Mowat analysis of data from the 2016 census. This analysis also shows certain visible minority groups have educational attainment gaps when compared with the Ontario average.

Education and Labour Market Impacts of the Future to Discover Project (SRDC and HEQCO)

A long-running research study conducted by the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation looking at ways to increase access to post-secondary education of underrepresented students found that enhanced career-education programs and promises of financial support made as early as high school boosted participation rates. And higher participation rates yielded substantial economic returns to the lives of young people.

State of Immigrant Inclusion in the Greater Toronto Area Labour Market (TRIEC)

The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council was founded in 2003 to ensure that immigrants in the Greater Toronto Area could enter the labour market and find work in their field. Fifteen years on, there have been changes, both in terms of what the local labour market looks like and in terms of immigrants’ chances of finding career success.
