Canada Urgently Needs National Training Strategy

Jul 9, 2014

"The fact that Canada is now falling behind many other countries in education and skills acquisition is not a crisis per se. It becomes a crisis only if we fail to act quickly and systematically to improve our performance." This from a new report by the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE), which takes a critical look at Ottawa and the provinces for what it calls "an alarming slide in the quality of Canada's education and skills training systems."

CCCE notes in its release that while Canada is the "world's only advanced economy" without a national office or ministry for education (with the result that education policy and improvement strategies are rarely discussed nationally), our private sector is also falling behind the times on this issue. The report contrasts Canada's private sector with that of Germany, "where employers 'take seriously their responsibility to create places for apprenticeships' and to work closely with educators and governments in developing a highly skilled labour force."

Find key takeways in the CCCE release, and download the complete report.

[The CCCE represents Canada's business community, with 150 chief executives and leading entrepreneurs in all sectors and regions of the country. Its member companies collectively employ 1.5 million Canadians and are responsible for most of Canada's private sector investments, exports, workplace training and research and development.]
