Labour Market Challenges in Canada: Evidence-based Labour Market Policy Looking Forward to 2030

Nexen Technology & Conference Centre
University of Calgary Downtown Campus
906 8th Ave. SW Calgary, AB
Registration and breakfast at 7:30 a.m.; Program from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

While population aging and commodities driven skilled trades shortages and economic boom conditions have driven the discourse over broad policy areas like immigration, post secondary education, (OTHERS), it appears that the recent pause imposed on immigration flows and growing reconsideration of the roles of universities and the encouragement to young workers not to expect to work for pay in their preferred fields signals a need to critically appraise what labour market needs will be and what the federal and provincial governments can do to ensure that those needs are met. For that purpose, this roundtable will bring together businesses, governments and leading experts on labour market issues to examine the nature of the key labour market challenges facing Canada over the next 20 years and policy alternatives to managing the labour market challenges and ensuring Canada has a strong and effective labour market over the next 20 years and beyond.
