Submission by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance concerning their study on youth employment in Canada.
For young Canadians, a university education remains a path to success in the job market. Canadian universities share the federal government’s concern about youth unemployment, and are committed to the goals of helping to create jobs and growth for the benefit of all Canadians, especially young people. Universities are taking steps to ensure that graduates are equipped with the skills they need to be competitive in a mobile and globally-connected knowledge labour market.
The response was submitted to the Committee on Finance April 9, 2014.
