The Economic Club of Canada hosts Paul Davidson, president of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada

As students head back to class at Canada’s universities, join Paul Davidson as he tackles one of the most hotly debated questions in Canada today: What kinds of skills do young Canadians need to get a job – and build satisfying and productive careers? Mr. Davidson will take you behind the scenes to university campuses today and describe how universities are preparing young people for innovative and collaborative workplaces and what more Canada needs to do to produce these leaders of tomorrow.
