Abstract:

"Skills shortages have regularly been identified as one of the top 10 barriers to competitiveness in Canada by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, costing the Canadian economy billions in lost GDP annually. There is now a rare consensus about skills needs and challenges in this country, across the demand and supply perspectives.
