State of Learning in Canada: A Year in Review (2010)

2009-2010

This document aims to provide the most current information on the Canadian learning landscape, to paint a picture of how Canadians are faring as lifelong learners. The document also includes highlights from the report on the State of Aboriginal Learning in Canada: A Holistic Approach to Measuring Success (2009), which was the first application of a comprehensive approach to measuring Aboriginal Learning in Canada.

The body of the document is divided into five chapters: Early Childhood Learning; Learning in School; Post-Secondary Education; Adult Learning; and Aboriginal Learning. The authors find progress being made in each sector, along with areas that require more attention.

However, they point out that while Canada has much to celebrate with regard to its formal education sector, Canadians cannot afford to remain complacent. According to the authors, Canada has made little progress in lifelong learning over the past several years.

If left unchecked, lack of progress in learning at every stage of life could soon translate into increased pressure on many sectors of Canada’s economy, including social-assistance programs, the health-care system and the criminal-justice system. As well, these pressures also diminish Canada’s economic competitiveness.
