Education to Employment - Pathways Out of Poverty

The City of Saint John in New Brunswick faces a challenge as it works to keep its economy growing and to attract new businesses: too few employees have the education and experience employers seek. Thousands of people with low levels of education live in some of Saint John’s poorest areas, struggling to find adequate employment and make ends meet. These workers could – given proper support and training – fill much of the region’s growing labour force demand.

This report lays out the challenges and opportunities faced by individuals on low income with low levels of education, and recommends policies and practices which can be followed to ensure those individuals’ success. This report includes a comprehensive executive summary and explores such topics as the links between poverty and education, educational options, recruitment and retention, and concerns with youth.
