Policy Actions Report: Making Newfoundland and Labrador a Province of Choice for Young People

by CPRN / RCRPP

Policy Actions Report: Making Newfoundland and Labrador a Province of Choice for Young People is based on findings from a series of deliberative dialogues with young people from the province; the dialogues were designed and conducted by CPRN, under the direction of the Newfoundland Department of Human Resources, Labour and Employment (HRLE), which is responsible for the development of the strategy.

The priority issues expressed by youth in the dialogues and recommended by CPRN as primary areas for policy action include: access to high-quality and affordable education and better transitions between school and work; economic development that creates good quality jobs and is diversified and sustainable; accessible and high quality public services, including those that protect the environment; and strengthening ethnic diversity and immigration in the province.
