A national survey recently conducted by Environics for CERIC — a Canadian charitable organization that advances education and research in career counseling and career development — reveals that the majority of Canadian executives (81 per cent) are having difficulty finding people with the right skill set to fill positions and 78 per cent agree there is a skills gap in their respective industry.
