What is the Future of Learning in Canada? (2011)

In its final report, the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) states that Canada is slipping down the international learning curve, falling behind competitor countries and economies. The authors attribute this situation to the failure of governments to work together and to show collective political leadership.

The solution involves the development of clear trans-Canadian policies and actions, the authors say. The starting point for the proposed directions is the establishment of a Council of Ministers on Learning that brings together representatives from the federal, provincial and territorial levels.

In addition, there must be clear and measureable national goals for each stage of learning; permanent, independent monitors to compare Canadian learning results to stated goals; and standing advisory groups to consult on national objectives and the means to reach these goals.

The report includes sections dealing specifically with early childhood learning; kindergarten to Grade 12; post-secondary education; adult learning and workplace training; and Aboriginal learning.
