Queering the Tech Ecosystem: Barriers and Opportunities (Queertech)

Based on a mixed-methods research project, this report explores queer experiences in tech, acquiring employment, industry recommendations and more.

Quality of employment among First Nations people living off reserve and Métis (Statistics Canada)

This research found that employed First Nations people living off reserve and Métis had lower average hourly earnings than non-Indigenous people, and were more likely to report having experienced unfair treatment and discrimination at work. The report revealed some encouraging findings relating to gender pay equity and representation in some types of management positions.

Entering the Labour Market During Recession Can Leave Lasting Scars (TD Bank)

This report finds that students who graduate during periods of elevated unemployment are less likely to find high-quality jobs than those who graduate when the economy is thriving. It additionally notes that work-integrated learning can help bridge gaps, but that voluntarily opting to take part in WIL yields greater advantages compared to mandatory participation.
