Every other week, we release 5 Minutes for Business, a publication written by Hendrik Brakel, our Senior Director of Economic, Financial and Tax Policy. In these publications, Hendrik briefly describes current issues that affect the Canadian economy and provides insight on what it will mean for Canadians today and the future. In this week’s edition, he looks at the best way to improve the skills of the Canadian workforce.

But this isn’t some far off problem for our kids to deal with. Even today, we’re hearing from businesses across the country that their inability to access skilled workers is one of Canada’s biggest barriers to competitiveness. 

So what should young people be studying?
