As the aging workforce is a common challenge facing many developed countries, governments around the world are exploring new ways to support the labour market participation of mature workers. Developing strategies to harness the knowledge and skills of mature workers is also important as Canada moves toward economic recovery and improving productivity.

Organized on behalf of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, the National Conference on Maximizing Employment Opportunities for Mature Workers convened up to 100 stakeholders from various sectors and industries to discuss key issues and promising opportunities for mature workers. Sessions focused on such themes as re-employment, retention, and recruitment, and feature experts from different sectors and jurisdictions, including a special presentation on Australia's response to the aging workforce.
