Smart Workplace: Recruiting and Retaining the Next Generation of Workers


In partnership with the Association of Community Colleges of Canada (ACCC) and with financial support from the department of Human Resource and Skills Development Canada and the Public Service Human Resource Management Agency of Canada, the Public Policy Forum recently undertook an on-line survey of community college students in Canada.

The main purpose of the survey was to assess college and institute students’ interest and motivation in working for the federal public service. The survey also provides insights on college and institute students’ perspectives on future career choices and preferences, the skills they gained at college and preferred job search strategies.
