An interview with Mike Luff, who presented at the Dignity for All policy summit on Employment.
CPJ: Which groups in Canada typically face high levels of unemployment?
Mike Luff: Too many workers are currently being locked out of opportunity and prosperity. This includes immigrants, Aboriginal peoples, women, persons with disabilities, at-risk youth, older workers, and less-skilled individuals (those with a high school diploma or less).
Faced with an aging population and increasing global competition, it is critical that we do everything we can to maximize the size and skills of our workforce. We cannot afford to leave anybody on the sidelines.
