OTTAWA, May 28, 2014 /CNW/ - The performance of provincial education systems, the impact of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement on labour markets, and the economic outlook for Canada's mid-sized cities, are part of the original Conference Board of Canada (CBoC) research due to be released in June.  A selection of the reports coming up, is listed below:

  • How Canada Performs: A Report Card on Canada-Education and Skills:  This flagship Conference Board research will, for the first time, provide an assessment of 10 Canadian provinces against 16 advanced peer countries on 23 indicators of education and skills performance.
  • Mid-Sized Cities Outlook 2014: Canada's mid-sized cities play important roles as regional hubs and economic engines in their respective areas. This second annual publication provides detailed information about recent economic history, as well as a two-year economic forecast, for eight participating cities.
  • Defining Health and Health Care Sustainability: This report from the Conference Board's Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care  provides a framework to understand sustainability and act to achieve it. The framework identifies a set of principles and six key factors that are thought to be essential to support sustainable health and health care.
  • Crossing the Sea with CETA: What its Labour Mobility Provisions Means for Canadian Business: This briefing from the CBoC's Global Commerce Centre provides a primer on the labour mobility provisions in the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement:  how they may improve prospects for Canadian business; what details are still unknown; and how Canadian firms can prepare.
  • Selling Beyond the US: Do Recent Immigrants Advance Canada's Export Agenda?: This report from the Global Commerce Centre investigates whether recent immigrant business owners may significantly contribute to Canada's export agenda. It also looks at where they export.
  • Intergenerational Equity in Income: This research is based on an analysis of three decades of taxation data, and investigates the disposable income of older workers versus that of younger ones. The research is part of a larger focus by the Conference Board on issues of age, work and society.
