Pathways Forward: Mapping Job Transitions for Ontario Food Retail Workers (Brookfield Institute)

As the food retail sector continues to evolve, so does the reality of many grocery jobs. This report identifies specific options for workers looking to transition into other in-demand jobs in Ontario.

Unlocking experience-based job progressions for millions of workers (McKinsey)

Workers need more opportunities to progress based on their experience and to gain access not only to new jobs but to good jobs that open the door to ongoing economic advancement. If these workers are able to progress, the United States can create a more inclusive and equitable recovery, with economic growth and innovation that many more Americans can benefit from in the coming years.

Barriers to employment and training for equity-seeking groups (SRDC)

Groups underrepresented in Canada’s labour market also tend to be among the least well served by training and employment programs. There is a need to better understand the intersecting factors that pose barriers to these equity-seeking groups in accessing and benefiting from these programs, and in achieving employment success.

Immigration and the Success of Canada’s Post-Pandemic Economy (Public Policy Forum)

Although Canada welcomes many immigrants, we aren’t creating an employment environment where they can use their skills and credentials to their fullest potential. This fact has never been more clear, with immigrants disproportionately impacted by decimated hospitality and service sectors due to recurring pandemic lockdowns.
