Education was found to be the single most important factor for labour market success.

But a market mismatch — “jobs without people and people without jobs” — requires new models that support experiential learning and entrepreneurship, while developing market-ready skills.


Data indicate higher levels of unemployment for youth from the following communities: Aboriginal peoples, new immigrants, visible minorities, people with disabilities, and rural and Northern populations.

Youth from vulnerable communities need more opportunities for training, work placements and mentorship.
