Over the past year LivingWork.ca has been actively organizing and setting up a research network to link Canadian and Chinese applied and academic researchers. The goal of the network will be to enhance the exchange of information and shared understanding of economics and labour markets issues that each country faces. The network will engage in a variety of activities including original research, translation of the latest research documentation, publication of materials that are mutually agreed upon and dissemination of information. The focus however will be to establish better communication, dialogue and exchange of ideas and experiences.
