5 reports that caught our eye the week of Dec. 5, 2021

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

The Career Development Profession in Canada and the Emergence of Online/Multi-Modal Practice Delivery (Future Skills Centre and Blueprint)

During the pandemic, career development practitioners are being required to make sense of a turbulent labour market, typically without adequate training, while at the same time providing appropriate support to Canadians. Furthermore, COVID-19-related restrictions have made the integration of technology into the delivery of career development services no longer an option. This paper addresses fundamental issues related to career development support and the integration of online practice.

This report is one of a series of nine reports recently released by Future Skills Centre and Blueprint as part of the Responsive Career Pathways Initiative, which aims to identify bold career guidance solutions that could support the growing segment of the labour force that are facing career transitions. The other papers include: A Roadmap for Change: Building Responsive Career Pathways in a Post-Pandemic World, Breaking Down Barriers to Career Development and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Responsive Career Pathways. 

Making Up Time: The Pandemic’s Impact on Young Adults in Canada (Environics)

This report documents not only the extent to which Canadian youth as a whole have been especially hard hit economically by the pandemic, but also how specific groups of youth – notably Indigenous youth, Black youth, youth with a disability, youth without a post-secondary education and recent post-secondary graduates – have each encountered particular challenges.

The Missing Entrepreneurs 2021 (OECD)

This report looks at how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation, economic growth and social inclusion by overcoming obstacles to business start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented groups in entrepreneurship.

Labour Force Survey, November 2021 (Statistics Canada)

Employment rose by 154,000 (+0.8%) in November and was 186,000 (+1.0%) higher than its pre-COVID February 2020 level. The unemployment rate fell to 6.0%, within 0.3 percentage points of what it was in February 2020.

COVID-19 and the world of work (ILO)

The report gives a global overview of how countries are grappling with the recovery, eighteen months into the crisis. Based on new data, it provides a detailed picture of the different recovery trends between developed and developing countries.
