  • Inside Access: Closing the Divide: Progress and Challenges in Adult Skills Development among Indigenous Peoples

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

Skills gaps between off-reserve Indigenous people and non-Indigenous Canadians are wide among those without a high-school education – a gap compounded by relatively high dropout rates among Indigenous youth. What is to blame? Join this conference call to hear from Parisa Mahboubi and Colin Busby on the factors that have caused these gaps.

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
  • Free as a member benefit

To register for this call, please contact Robin Ivory at rivory@cdhowe.org or (416) 865-1904 ext. 9998.
