Annex A. Responses to policy questionnaires

This report relies upon information collected by the OECD Policy Questionnaire ‘Career Guidance for Adults in Canada’, which focused on how career guidance is organised, funded, and provided. It was completed by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) in June 2020. It was later distributed to provinces and territories through the Forum of Labour Market Ministers and the Council of Ministers of Education in Canada. Responses were provided by provincial employment and labour officials and/or provincial education officials in July and August 2021, as summarised in the table below.

A separate policy questionnaire, the OECD 2021 Policy Questionnaire ‘Certification for career development practitioners in Canada’ focused on the voluntary, pan-Canadian certification for career guidance advisors. It was sent to all members of the National Certification Steering Committee in July 2021 and informed the analysis of the benefits and limitations of a pan-Canadian certification standard.
