This 14th edition of the Learning and Development Outlook has two main objectives: to provide L&D leaders and practitioners with data about the current state of learning programs, practices, and expenditures across Canada; and to provide an analysis of the current state of learning in organizations. The report summarizes the results of the Learning and Development Outlook survey sent during the fall of 2016 and winter of 2017. A total of 127 organizations completed the survey. A key finding that emerged from the responses is that organizations with strong learning cultures invest more in their learning and development and are realizing greater returns for their investment. Largely, they are guided by strong leadership that places a high priority on employee engagement and communication.
