Employer Investment in Workplace Learning: Report on the Yellowknife Roundtable

by Ron Saunders

Employer investment in workplace learning is important to the development of the skills and knowledge of Canadian workers, especially as the aging of the baby boom cohort results in a slowing of labour force growth.  The Canadian Council on Learning's Work and Learning Knowledge Centre is partnering with Canadian Policy Research Networks to convene a series of roundtables on employer investment in workplace learning across Canada.  Senior government officials and senior representatives from business, labour, colleges/universities, Aboriginal organizations and NGOs attend.  The goal of the roundtables is to identify practical steps to ensure that the quantity and quality of workplace learning in Canada matches the needs of the economy and maximizes the potential of Canadian workers.
