Abstract:

Current changing demographic and economic patterns are creating skills shortages provincially. A 2010 Bow Valley College study illustrated the urgency of the skills shortage: over half of regional employers surveyed felt their organizations' capacity was limited by difficulty in finding workers with specific skills to fill positions. While several factors influence skills shortages, Alberta's aging population and lower post-secondary participation rate exacerbate shortages.
