Professor Miles Corak Advised Canadian Government on Labour Issues

Economist Miles Corak, a professor with the Graduate Centre of the City University of New York who previously served as a policy adviser to the [Canadian] government on labour issues, said there isn’t much more that Ottawa can do in this area [on skills and training] on its own.

Mr. Corak speculated that a Liberal government looking at re-election could be considering new ways to help people afford the cost of postsecondary training. “If they’re saying you continually need to retool through all points of your lifetime … then maybe some level of postsecondary education should be free," he said.
