The Challenge: Canada is at risk of losing its competitive edge

Canada faces an uncertain future. Traditional partners are increasingly turning inward, and technological advances and automation are drastically altering the labour market. Our ability to adapt to these changes, diversify trade relations, invest in talent and instil a mindset of lifelong learning will be the keys to Canada’s success in a rapidly shifting, global knowledge economy.

The Solution: Investing in future skills and talent

In this time of unprecedented global change, investments in hands-on learning, global study, Indigenous student success, next-generation research talent and leading-edge research and training facilities will equip Canada to compete on the world stage.


Universities Canada recommends specific investments in skills and talent to strengthen Canada’s competitive position in the world.
