Fact Sheet - Learning to Do: Participation in Job-related Training (2010)

The authors note that according to Statistics Canada figures, one-quarter of working-age adults in Canada participate in job-related training, with younger adults more likely to be involved in such training than their older counterparts.

Further information from Statistics Canada shows that workers with lower levels of formal education are significantly less likely to participate in job-related training than their more-educated counterparts. The authors point out that less-educated workers stand to benefit the most from training.

According to a study by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Canada ranks seventh among 21 countries when it comes to participation in non-formal job-related education, behind the United States, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
