4 reports that caught our eye the week of March 3, 2019

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

Roadmaps and roadblocks: Career and life planning, guidance and streaming in Ontario’s schools (People for Education)

This Counselling Foundation of Canada-funded report looks at the policies, programs and resources available in Ontario to support students’ career and life planning. It finds that Ontario may be falling behind at a time when there is growing pressure to prepare students for a rapidly changing, increasingly complex future, and that it needs a more comprehensive and coherent approach to curriculum, resources and course choices.

Study: Are Mental Health and Neurodevelopmental Conditions Barriers to Post-secondary Access? (Statistics Canada)

Little attention has been paid to the role that disability plays in determining whether youth enroll in post-secondary education. This study finds that youth with a neurodevelopmental condition or a mental-health condition were substantially less likely to enroll in post-secondary education than youth who were not diagnosed with any long-term health condition in their school years.

Men without work: Why are they so unhappy in the U.S. compared to other places? (Brookings)

The global economy is full of paradoxes. Despite progress in technology, reducing poverty and increasing life expectancy, the poorest states lag behind, and there is increasing inequality in the wealthiest ones. Prime-aged males out of the labor force in the U.S. are the least hopeful and most stressed and angry compared to the same group in other regions, including the Middle East.

Best Cities for Youth to Work in Canada (Youthful Cities and RBC)

As Canada’s population ages, we need to make sure our cities are vibrant places for youth to work. The inaugural Urban Work Index, which was funded by RBC Future Launch, ranks 21 Canadian cities based on 48 urban work indicators, finding Edmonton to be the top-ranked city in the country.
