Yesterday’s Gone: Exploring the future of Canada’s labour market in a post-COVID world (Brookfield Institute)
This report explores a broad range of trends with the potential to impact Canada’s labour market over the coming decade – many of which have been accelerated, disrupted, or created by COVID-19.
This joint report by the ILO, Cedefop, UNESCO, OECD, the European Commission, ETF and ICCDPP, reflects the results of a flash international survey on how career guidance services responded to the challenges posed by COVID-19. It highlights the range of solutions found, especially digital, and the challenges felt by services, practitioners and clients.
When The Conference Board asked people across Canada to identify the most important skills for career success, they overwhelmingly identified social and emotional skills (SES), like communication, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills, along with leadership and adaptability. Four clear themes emerged:
- concern that the next generation lacks SES
- a need for inclusive approaches to SES development
- growing demand from employers for SES
- ideas on how to better develop SES
