Background Information

In May 2021, the Government of Canada launched the new Skills for Success framework, which replaces the old Essential Skills model developed in the mid-1990s.  The newly updated framework identifies and defines nine key skills for success in learning, work, and life.  These are literacy, numeracy, writing, digital skills, communication, problem-solving, adaptability, collaboration and creativity, and innovation.

Created in response to the changing skill needs of Canadians and the evolving labour market, the new Skills for Success model can support individuals in identifying their current skills and help them build new skills to succeed in learning, work, and life.
