Experiential Learning and Pathways to Employment for Canadian Youth

The Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities agreed to undertake a study on the way in which experiential learning can guide younger Canadians through the transitions between high school, post-secondary education and the labour market.

The study has seven main themes:

  • youth underemployment after completing their education;
  • youth unemployment and how it harms the transition to the workforce;
  • volunteerism and internships and how they inform work decisions for students;
  • school-to-work transition strategy in Canada compared with international models and programs;
  • apprenticeships;
  • co-op programs and work-integrated learning; and
  • entrepreneurship.
