Summary:
The performance of youth on the labor market is a challenge in OECD countries facing persistent youth unemployment. As labor markets become more and more selective, a lack of relevant skills brings a higher risk of unemployment. This report on Canada contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school to work, and a set of policy recommendations for further action by the public authorities and social partners.--Publisher's description.
