Employers in all sectors across Canada seek workers who demonstrate Employability Skills. The Conference Board of Canada’s Employability Skills define the skills, attitudes, and behaviours needed to succeed in the workplace. They are the foundation for employability and provide a common language for recruitment, performance review, and career path planning.

Related resources, including the Employability Skills Toolkit and the Employability Skills Credentialing Tool,are available to support Employability Skills development. These tools are designed to help individuals and employers in performance review and career path planning activities.
