State of Learning in Canada: Toward a Learning Future (2008)

Report on Learning in Canada 2008

This document presents an overview of how well equipped Canadians are as learners to meet the needs of the future. The authors state that while Canada has an enviable system of formal education, Canadians could benefit from a wider range of learning opportunities to sustain economic well-being and achieve greater social equity.

The authors have divided their findings into four chapters: learning in the early childhood years, from birth to five; learning in the elementary and secondary school years, from age six to 18; learning in the post-secondary years, ages 18-27; and learning in the adult years, 25 and over.

A fifth chapter offers conclusions about the current state of lifelong learning in Canada; examines how other countries are working to foster a culture of lifelong learning; and recommends priority areas to help Canada become a society that recognizes the value of learning throughout life.
