    Description:

    These highlights provide a brief summary of the report 'Employee training: an international perspective', the latest monograph released using data from the International Adult Literacy Survey. The report provides new insights into training issues in seven countries: Canada, the United States, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Poland, Germany and Sweden. The study examines full-time paid workers between the ages of 25 and 60, who had been employed for at least 42 weeks in the 12 months preceding the survey (about nine months in the previous year). (Although the self-employed account for a growing share of the work force, they are not included in the analysis.)

    Description:

    Would redistributing work hours solve the unemployment problem? This study converts regular paid overtime hours into hypothetical full-time jobs, then distributes them by province, occupation and level of education. It attempts to match these full-time jobs with the unemployed by province and occupation.

    Description:

    Canada is an active competitor in the global economy, an arena in which our knowledge and skills are vital assets. At a time when goods, services and investment flow more freely into and out of the country, much of our international success comes from our knowledge-intensive industries. As a result, the need for skilled workers has intensified and higher education has become an even more important determinant of Canada's overall competitiveness and economic well-being than in the past. Canada's postsecondary education system encompasses universities, colleges and trade/vocational institutions. In 1995 there were 1.67 million part-time and full-time postsecondary students, 52% of whom attended university. Universities, who finances are the focus of this article, therefore serve as major providers of the higher education that is critical to our prosperity.

    Description:

    Many studies have examined the influence of children's upbringing, and home and school experiences on their development. These studies, however, often suffer from several limitations. They either examine children in other countries, use local samples that are not representative of Canadian children in general, or examine a limited number of factors in a single area of development.

    For many years, education has been the focus of considerable attention in Canada. This attention does not originate only from the usual stakeholders, such as governments, school boards, and teachers' unions. It comes also from the general population and from interest groups such as the business community and labour market analysts.

    Description:

    This article focuses on the incidence of job-related education and training among the population and among workers, differentiating whether or not the training activities were employer-supported. It also explores the likelihood of receiving job-related education and training in 1993 using two complementary statistical approaches: first, a direct reading of the distribution of participants in education and training compared with the distribution of the population, divided by major characteristics; and, second, the use of a statistical technique (logistic regression) that considers each characteristic while taking others into account. In the analysis, several characteristics were retained: four demographic characteristics (sex, age, educational attainment and province of residence) and seven labour market variables (labour market status, occupation, industry, job tenure, company size, total income and union status). (For the logistic regression analysis, all these variables were decomposed into a series of dichotomous variables).

    Description:

    People with jobs involving supervision, management and decision-making have the opportunity to develop skills that are transferable to other organizations: leadership, communication, organization and management skills, for example. In addition, as supervisors and managers, they may have increased occasion to network with others, which may enhance their opportunity to further their career progression. As a result, in today's increasingly competitive labour market, those whose role in their organization includes supervision, management and decision-making responsibilities may be better able to advance their careers and to recover from a job loss. Results from analysis of data from the 1993 Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID) and the 1994 General Social Survey (GSS), indicate that, with few exceptions, education is one of the strongest predictors of an individual's ability to access occupations offering autonomy and authority in the workplace. This remains true, even after the effects of factors that also influence access to these types of positions, such as gender, age, firm size, years of work experience and industry, are taken into consideration.

    Description:

    This article attempts to determine how the future retirement of elementary and secondary school teachers will affect the hiring of new teachers, given the aging of the teaching force. Using socio-demographic analysis, future requirements for new teachers are determined according to three scenarios regarding retirement age, namely, retirement at age 55, 60 or 65, assuming that the pupil-teacher ratio will remain constant. At present, budget cuts are forcing some educational institutions to reduce their teaching staff, but in a few years, when teachers currently on staff retire, the situation could improve. What, then, will be the hiring prospects in the field of education in the future? This analysis is based on data from the October 1995 Labour Force Survey. It also focuses on the situation facing managers in the education sector, for they will have to decide how to handle the demand for teachers. In addition, the findings may assist young people in choosing their careers.

  • Index and guides: 81-580-X
    Description:

    The adult education and training sector is as complex as it is dynamic. In order to describe all its facets, Statistics Canada surveys many different populations. Given the number of data sources and their conceptual and methodological differences, it is sometimes very difficult for researchers and decision makers to obtain required information or data. This guide is a tool that has been developed to assist them. It provides a summary description of all Statistics Canada surveys related to adult education and training. From a selected variable, it allows the identification of surveys that can provide information. It also indicates relevant publications and how to obtain additional information.

    Description:

    Unpredictability" and "transformation" are words often used to describe the contemporary labour market. Debate continues about the implications of the disruption of stable career and work patterns which were assumed to have been the norm in the Canadian workplace. Teaching, because it is the largest profession in Canada, is a useful venue for examining these labour market dynamics, especially transitions into and out of the profession. These entry and exit transitions, which are the central theme of this paper, are also of interest in a profession like teaching where university graduates have traditionally enjoyed a tight link to an established labour market.
