Make Skills a National Priority (2001)

Consultations by the Canadian Labour and Business Centre

This report is a synthesis of policy directions and approaches that could help meet Canada's current and future needs for skilled workers.

Earlier national business-labour leadership surveys by the Canadian Labour and Business Centre indicate that "skills shortages" — which as an issue was barely on the radar screen of labour and business four or five years ago — is now ranked by both constituencies as one of their top ten concerns.

What is needed, as both constituencies point out, is leadership to make the skills and learning agenda a national priority, with a sense of urgency and a will to act that is shared by all stakeholders. Moreover, the active commitment of all orders of government is needed to deal with jurisdictional issues, and to facilitate collaboration with one another and with other stakeholders.
