Pathways for Youth to the Labour Market: An Overview of High School Initiatives

by Alison Taylor

A new report from CPRN has found that governments could be doing much more to help young people get on the right path to a good job.  The report, Pathways for Youth to the Labour Market:  An Overview of High School Initiatives, looks at programs and policies that help or hinder young people in finding rewarding work.  Four provinces were studied:  British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Newfoundland/Labrador.  Information from the State of Queensland, Australia is also included to allow international comparison.
