Paul Davidson, President of Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 25, 2014) - What kinds of skills do young Canadians need to get a job - and build satisfying and productive careers? It's one of the most hotly-debated issues in Canada today. Join Paul Davidson, president of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, as he looks at the evidence on Canada's future education and labour market needs, drawn from reputable and reliable sources. Mr. Davidson will take you behind the scenes to university campuses today, and describe how universities are preparing young people for innovative and collaborative workplaces. He'll talk about programs that provide students with the ability to think critically and work collaboratively. He'll illustrate how universities provide workforce experience, entrepreneurial skills, and leadership training. And he'll talk about what more Canada needs to do to produce university, college and trades graduates that meet today's labour market needs, and position our country for a globally competitive future.
