Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week:
Acting on the Cannabis Act: Workplace Policy Approaches to Cannabis (The Conference Board of Canada)
This report examines the results of a survey of Canadian employers exploring the effects of the 2018 legalization of cannabis on the workplace. Included are the policy approaches organizations have taken considering cannabis legalization, concerns around the impacts of cannabis on the workplace, problematic substance use, challenges that organizations have faced after legalization, and workplace education related to cannabis use.
Infographic: Portrait of environmental and clean technology jobs in Canada, 2017 (Statistics Canada)
This infographic, based on Statistics Canada data, includes information about the number of environmental and clean technology jobs, average wave, gender breakdown and more.
The Paycheck Blues: Why Extra Work is often Not Worth the Effort for Lower-income Families (C.D. Howe Institute)
Low-income Canadian families with children encounter high “all-inclusive” tax rates that could discourage parents from working more or entering the workforce, argues a new C.D. Howe Institute report. The report finds that parents with children may lose a significant chunk of their take-home pay through taxes and reduced fiscal benefits.
