How to use this Scorecard

All Canadians can explore the role that growing Canada’s population can play in building long-term, sustainable, and shared prosperity.
Governments can identify critical areas of focus for public policy change and investment. They can use the Scorecard to inform the public on the need for action on priority areas and the risks of maintaining the status quo.
The business sector can identify challenges and interconnections between areas such as education, training, infrastructure, climate, and immigration. This knowledge can enable businesses to lead by improving business practices and advocating for policy change that will enhance Canada’s investment environment and the country’s global standing.
The non-profit sector and labour can mobilize community partners, donors, and stakeholders around local and national actions that can influence social and economic well-being and further Canada’s ability to build a country founded on sustainability and shared prosperity.   
The academic community can explore priority areas for research that will deepen understanding of key challenges to Canada’s future prosperity. They can also leverage the Scorecard to mobilize existing research that proposes solutions to challenges the Scorecard identifies.
