Skills Next Series

Canadians’ needs for skills training and education are changing quickly.

Through Skills Next, the Public Policy Forum, the Diversity Institute, and the Future Skills Centre are publishing a series of short review papers on the state of the skills and education ecosystem in Canada. These papers will present the current knowledge on important issues and identify under-researched opportunities for policymakers to explore.

Additional papers will be released Spring 2020.

On the Skills Next authors

A diverse set of authors who are engaged in the skills ecosystem through various roles, including through research, activism, and policy-making, have been carefully selected to provide a broad range of perspectives while also foregrounding the Canadian context. Their varied backgrounds, experiences, and expertise have shaped their individual perspectives, their analyses of the current skills ecosystem, and the reports they have authored.

Skills Next is funded by the Government of Canada’s Future Skills Centre.
