Towards an Inclusive Education for Racialized Youths’ Employment in Canada
Canadian youth, who account for one third of Canada’s population, have higher levels of unemployment and those who are racialized, are even more likely to be under-employed. Moreover, this situation has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Education is considered a pathway to employment. For example, some government policies focus on improving outcomes in K-12 education, access, and support for post-secondary education, expecting to lead to positive employment outcomes in the future.
