Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity (2021). #ImpactCOVID: Youth Engagement Toolkit.
Written by youth, this toolkit was developed to facilitate the inclusion of youth perspectives in Canada’s economic COVID-19 recovery plan and to help youth re-enter the workforce. Equity is a central feature of this document. Recommendations consider social determinants of health, including barriers to high-quality employment (e.g., racism, immigration, disabilities), intersectionality, and the pandemic’s disproportionate impacts on some groups of individuals.
This toolkit is intended to increase collaboration between youth and employers. It also offers insights into equity-based youth employment issues.
