3 reports that caught our eye the week of Oct. 24, 2021

CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week.

The role of newcomers and international students in driving Canadian economic growth (CICan)

A new report by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) outlines how members help Canada achieve its ambitious immigration targets, while supporting the integration of immigrants and international students, and improving their labour market outcomes.

The achievements, experiences and labour market outcomes of First Nations, Métis and Inuit women with bachelor’s degrees or higher (Statistics Canada)

This study examines the educational attainment and labour market outcomes of First Nations, Métis and Inuit women. It finds Indigenous women have made significant gains in every level of the educational system, but the disparities in educational attainment between Indigenous people and the non-Indigenous population persist.

Designing Paid and Protected Employment Leaves for Short-Term Sickness and Caregiving (IRPP)

The pandemic exposed large gaps in sickness and caregiving leave provisions available to workers across the country. Moving beyond the patchwork of emergency income-support programs and job-protection laws, this study recommends that workers be eligible for 15 days of paid leave to cover both sickness and caregiving needs, which would bring Canada in in line with its international peers.
