Employer Investment in Workplace Learning: Report on the Halifax Roundtable

by Ron Saunders

CPRN, in partnership with the Canadian Council on Learning's Work and Learning Knowledge Centre, has been examining the issue of employer investment in workplace learning.  To gain an understanding of provincial and regional perspectives on this issue, a series of roundtables were held across Canada.  Participants included senior government officials and senior representatives from business, labour, colleges/universities and NGOs.  The goal of the roundtables was to identify practical steps to ensure that the quantity and quality of workplace learning in Canada matched the needs of the economy and maximized the potential of Canadian workers.
