Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four that we found interesting this week:
This report looks at income trends between 1980 and 2015, as well as the income gap between young people, immigrants, racialized groups and the rest of the population in Peel, Toronto and York regions. The findings paint a stark picture of who has access to the opportunities to succeed, and who is being left behind because of circumstances they can’t control.
Despite extensive research and a high degree of policy concern, Canada’s progress on improving women’s representation in STEM has been uneven. Women’s representation decreases as they progress from high school to post-secondary studies and from there into the labour market.
This updated annotated bibliography on the future of work features reports from a variety of sources, with an emphasis on Canadian studies.
This briefing explores various solutions to help strengthen Canada’s labour force and economy. The solutions assessed include welcoming more immigrants, improving the labour force participation of women, Indigenous peoples and persons with disabilities, boosting the fertility rate, and advances in technology such as automation and artificial intelligence.
