The federal government has launched a program aimed at getting young Canadians interested in careers which are facing, or will soon be facing, labour shortages.

The program is producing a video library showing employees at work. The program, known as VECTOR — video explorations of careers, transitions, opportunities and realities — shows Canadians at work, describing the nature of their job and conditions of their workplace.

“Viewers will hear (workers) speak with passion about the challenges and accomplishments they realize through their work and each individual will highlight the key skills that are important in their occupational area,” according to a press release from Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC).
