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

Skills Gaps, Underemployment, and Equity of Labour-Market Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities in Canada (Future Skills Centre)

While people with disabilities can achieve socially integrated, financially independent lives through secure, well-paid employment, they are often trapped in low-skill jobs at high risk of automation. This report underscores the importance of training opportunities that are well aligned with the skills likely to be in high demand in the future.

Housing a Generation of Workers: Defining the Problem (Toronto Region Board of Trade and WoodGreen)

In booming cities like Toronto, too many low- and moderate-income households are being priced out. As rising rents and home prices outpace wage increases, even higher-wage workers are asking whether it’s time to leave the region. The loss of these workers comes with real economic and social costs that must be confronted.

Work-Ready Graduates: The Role of Co-op Programs in Labour Market Success (C.D. Howe Institute)

Participating in school/work co-op programs is linked to higher incomes and a higher likelihood of success in the labour market after graduation, but some get more benefits than others, according to this report.

Gendered Returns to Cognitive Skills in Canada (HEQCO)

Canadian workers who hold higher paying jobs derive greater benefit from having higher literacy, numeracy and problem-solving skills than those at the lower end of the wage spectrum, according to a new report published by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario.
