A Coming of Age: Counselling Canadians for Work in the Twentieth Century

Compiled by The Counselling Foundation of Canada with foreword written by Stephen Lewis. The past century has seen tremendous transformations to the Canadian workforce. The base of employment has shifted from a focus upon agriculture to an industrial economy and to an increasingly technologically driven reality. This has occurred over a hundred-year period that was also witness to the Great Depression and two devastating world wars. At every turn of this tumultuous time, workers had to adjust and readjust their goals and aspirations about their working lives.
