Working Towards Parity: Recommendations of the Aboriginal Human Capital Strategies Initiative –

Aboriginal Canadians constitute an ever-increasing proportion of the Canadian labour force. Given that Canada is going to experience a labour market shortage in western Canada over coming years, it is in our best interests to ensure that Aboriginal Canadians possess the educational training and skills necessary to compete successfully in the job market. Incorporating Aboriginal Canadians within the labour market is one of western Canada’s most important challenges.
