As noted by President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Perrin Beatty, “If we are serious about closing the skills gap in the future, young people and their parents need to be much better informed about employment and income prospects when deciding on post-secondary education.”
This article is stressing the importance of improving the information available and through this, we can produce better talent. “We are going to win in the business marketplace if we have the best workforce, and lose if we don’t.”
