Indigenous youth in need of employment supports: Report – Canadian HR Reporter

Jun 25, 2020

More than 350,000 young Indigenous people will come of employment age in less than six years, and they could boost the country’s economy by $27.7 billion per year if they are given the right employment supports, according to a report from the Canadian Council of Aboriginal Business (CCAB) and the Diversity Institute at Ryerson University.

However, this group continues to face challenges to employment. Numbers from 2016 indicate that the Indigenous employment rate was 8.4 percentage points below the non-Indigenous rate while their labour force participation is four percentage points below the non-Indigenous rate.

The unemployment rate for Indigenous people is also 7.8 percentage points above the non-Indigenous rate, according to the report Mapping the Landscape: Indigenous Skills Training and Jobs in Canada.
