Ageing and Employment Policies: Canada
Published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, 2005.
|In Canada, the proportion of persons aged 65 and over to the
working-age population will double to 45% by 2050. Without policy changes, this
could lead to higher public expenditures, labour force shortages, and slower
economic growth. This report surveys of the main barriers to employment for
older workers, assesses of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures
to overcome these barriers and presents a set of policy recommendations for
further action by the public authorities and social partners. It examines the
balances between income support and work incentives, methods for encouraging
employers to hire and retain workers, and policies for ensuring the
employability of older workers.
Ageing and Employment Policies: Canada asserts that both governments and firms will need to take active measures to adapt wage setting to ageing workforces, to address the extent to which other welfare schemes act as pathways to early retirement, to tackle age discrimination and to improve the job skills and working conditions of older workers.
