3 reports that caught our eye the week of Jan. 9, 2022

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

Labour Force Survey, December 2021 (Statistics Canada)

Employment rose by 55,000 (+0.3%) in December, while the unemployment rate was little changed at 5.9%. There were more people working full-time in December, particularly core-aged men aged 25 to 54. Most of the employment growth was in Ontario. Nationally, gains were driven by the construction and educational services industries.

First-in-Family Students (Higher Education Policy Institute)

This UK report looks at the pros and cons of using first-in-family as a key measure of disadvantage. It argues that, while it is an appropriate metric for low-level activity, it is not robust enough for higher-stakes initiatives, such as contextualized admissions, where it needs to be supplemented with additional information.

Values, Knowledge, and Vision: How Inuit Skills Can Strengthen Northern Economies (Conference Board of Canada)

How can Northern economies grow through Inuit skills and community priorities? This primer explores job sectors in Inuit Nunangat where values, traditional knowledge and strengths thrive. Among the findings: the Inuit arts economy has untapped potential and Inuit land-based practices play a pivotal role in emerging conservation-sector activities.
