Fact Sheet - Learning to Do: Availability of Workplace Training (2010)

The percentage of Canadian workplaces offering some form of training has increased, from 54 percent in 1999 to 59 percent in 2005, according to Statistics Canada documents. But the authors note that despite this increase, Canadian employers lag behind their European counterparts when it comes to the availability of such training, placing well behind the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden and France.

The authors also note that many Canadian employers offer only the most basic forms of structured workplace training, focusing on basic practices, not more advanced technical skills.

The size of the workplace plays a key role in the availability of training, with larger Canadian firms more likely to offer structured classroom training than small or medium-sized ones.
