With the government having taken an important first step in confronting youth unemployment, OUSA believes that the time is ripe for a discussion on what a holistic youth employment strategy might look like. Many challenges facing youth in the labour market have been growing for decades now and will not be solved overnight. This makes it more important than ever for the long-term thinking on youth employment to begin now. If students, governments and educators can decide what Ontario’s labour force should look like ten years from now, we can begin building that future.
