Consultations on the Government of Canada's Proposal to Establish a Canadian Learning Institute (2003)

Summary Report

At the National Summit on Innovation and Learning held in November 2002, the federal government announced its intention to work with partners to develop a Canadian Learning Institute. The government asked Dr. Benjamin Levin of the University of Manitoba and Ms. Shirley Seward, CEO of the Canadian Labour and Business Centre, to undertake an initial round of consultations regarding the broad parameters of the proposed Canadian Learning Institute. Consultations were undertaken in early 2003. Provinces and territories and a wide range of stakeholders were given the opportunity to express their views on the proposed mandate and organization of the institute and their willingness to participate.

This report outlines the views expressed over the course of these consultations, however comments are not attributed to specific individuals or organizations. The report identifies areas where participants appeared to agree and areas where views diverged, under three main themes:
- overall views
- proposed mandate
- proposed governance and structure
