2) Human Resources and Skills Development Canada - Call for Concept Papers

The Policy Research Directorate (PRD) from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) is pleased to invite you to submit a Concept Paper for a research program on Career Development Services in Canada. This short proposal of a dozen pages would be the first step of a selection process in two phases, for up to $400,000 funding of research projects.

Through the question "What Works in Career Development Services?" HRSDC wants to invite researchers, research institutions and groups, to examine the conditions, the components and the measure of outcomes of various career development interventions, which affect the employment status of different categories of people. The target groups are those facing significant barriers to their integration into the labor market, such as low-skilled adults, new immigrants, aboriginal people, people with low literacy or numeracy, and persons with disabilities.

For more details, please contact us at: NC-RESEARCH-RECHERCHE-GD@HRSDC-RHDCC.GC.CA  

Sincerely,

Jeff Frank - A/Director General, Policy Research Directorate
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada
