Towards National Priorities in Skills and Learning: Report on the CGA-Canada and PPF Regional Roundtables

04/23/2008

Throughout March and April 2008, the Public Policy Forum, in collaboration with the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada (CGA-Canada) organized and facilitated a series of eight Regional Roundtables in Montréal, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Halifax, Toronto, St. John’s, and Sudbury. These roundtables aimed to get a sense of the regional challenges with respect to workplace training, skills shortages and labour mobility, immigrant labour market integration, Aboriginal engagement, and retaining older workers.

This report explores key themes that emerged from the Regional Roundtables. These themes will form the basis of the agenda and discussion at the Summit on Skills and Learning on May 28.
