Améliorer l’alphabétisation et les compétences essentielles des travailleurs déplacés: Analyse documentaire

This literature review and best practices scan provides an overview of displaced workers in Canada and identifies best practices related to LES interventions.

The literature review is guided by three questions:

  1. What are the demographics and re-employment outcomes of displaced workers in general and with respect to specific populations (e.g. women, older workers, Indigenous, and immigrant populations)?
  2. What are current interventions and tools that utilize literacy and essential skills training to support the re-employment of displaced workers?
  3. Which BC regions are experiencing significant levels of worker displacement?
