The point of last month’s national roundtable on learning was clear: Canada has to stop squandering so much human potential.

Social and economic success is dependent upon a well-educated, well-trained population and while Canada is doing well on many measures, a lot more can be done. But, it will take a renewed commitment to education and life-long learning, said Graham Lowe, director of the work network at the Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN), sponsors of the roundtable.

The roundtable was the second of three meetings held on behalf of Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) to explore possibilities for enriching Canada’s labour pool.
