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

The Fast Lane (Clean Energy Canada)

This report finds Canada’s clean energy sector will employ 559,400 Canadians by 2030, in jobs like insulating homes, manufacturing electric buses or maintaining wind farms. And while 50,000 jobs are likely to be lost in fossil fuels over the next decade, just over 160,000 will be created in clean energy – a net increase of 110,000 new energy jobs in Canada.

The gender wage gap in Canada: 1998 to 2018 (Statistics Canada)

In Canada, women in the core working ages of 25 to 54 earned an average of $26.92 per hour in 2018, while their male counterparts earned $31.05. Given that women in Canada have surpassed men in educational attainment, diversified their fields of study at post-secondary institutions and increased their representation in higher-status occupations, the persistence of gender-based wage inequality warrants continued attention.

Indigenous Youth Well-Being (Rideau Hall Foundation)

The RHF partnered with the Mastercard Foundation to engage with Indigenous youth, as well as cross-sectoral stakeholders, on employment and community well-being. The result is this comprehensive report that clearly articulates youths’ voices, as well as a series of important recommendations around what constitutes ‘a good life.’

The Great Mosaic: Reviving Ontario’s Regional Economies (Ontario Chamber of Commerce)

This report outlines how government of all levels can work with industry to unleash the potential of Ontario’s regional economies and reinforce the competitiveness of the province as a whole.

Funding for Results in Higher Education (C.D. Howe Institute)

The purpose of this E-Brief is two-fold: first, to review international experiences with Performance Based Funding Systems (PBFs) and, second, to examine Ontario’s intention to impose PBFs on the province’s 45 post-secondary institutions to see if they are workable and in line with the lessons of international experience.
