Career Development Services for Canadian Youth: Access, Adequacy and Accountability, Donnalee Bell and Lynne Bezanson. Document No|1 - Pathways to the Labour Market Series. CPRN. July 2006. 54 pp.

A new research paper published by the Canadian Policy Research Networks and the Canadian Career Development Foundation shows that most young Canadians don't have adequate access to career development services to help them choose the best paths to a successful working life. Career Development Services for Canadian Youth: Access, Adequacy and Accountability is part of CPRN's Pathways for Youth to the Labour Market Project. It finds that career development services can reduce the drop-out rate, especially for disadvantaged youth; change attitudinal barriers that limit career choices.
