Submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance Pre-budget Consultations in Advance of Budget 2024
Recommendations to promote global skills development among Canadian post-secondary students:
Transition Global Skills Opportunity from a pilot to a permanent program and increase the current funding envelope to $200 million over five years with $40 million ongoing annually.
By ensuring sustainability and growth, the program will continue to effectively equip Canadian students with 21st century skills, deepen global ties, and enhance Canada’s competitiveness. This investment would significantly expand program impact, enable a broader reach and access, and strengthen benefits for Canadian students, businesses, and communities.
