Ontario is changing in important ways that matter for public policy. A Different Ontario: What the Census tells us about how Ontario is changing, a new series of reports from the Mowat Centre, takes a close look at data from the 2016 census to chart the most important trends and to discuss their implications for policymakers.
The census findings highlighted in this report underline a number of policy priorities, including promoting access to trades and apprenticeship training, college or university; providing effective skills training to adults who have already entered the workforce (particularly those who may be employed in industries such as manufacturing where employment numbers are falling); and implementing a regional economic development strategy that ensures new jobs are also created in the province’s smaller cities and regions.
