The goal of the roundtables was to identify practical steps to ensure that the quantity and quality of workplace learning in Canada matches the needs of the economy and maximizes the potential of Canadian workers. About 120 people participated in the four roundtables.This report presents the highlights of the discussion at the Yellowknife roundtable.
