Human Capital Policy Council

Share

Canada’s human capital challenges are receiving increasing attention by policymakers, businesses and the general public. Many issues related to education, skills development, income trends and other labour market outcomes are shaping economic growth and the prosperity of Canadians. Better public policies would allow individuals greater opportunity to reach their full potential. And, many misconceptions about human capital, if not addressed, could lead to policies with unintended or harmful consequences. The C.D. Howe Institute’s Human Capital Policy Council is composed of leading experts from the public sector, business and academia, who will help guide the program. The Council is co-chaired by Kathleen P. Taylor, Chair of RBC, and Neil Yeates, former Deputy Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
