Its work readiness program teaches students career-building skills, including communication, networking, interviewing and collaboration. JA Canada’s entrepreneurship program allows students to gain experience in running a successful business. It teaches students to create business plans, innovate and manage teams. In F2015, Junior Achievement Canada delivered 9,713 programs to 248,404 students.

In 2011, JA Canada engaged The Boston Consulting Group in a year-long study to measure the value of its programs across Canada. The study found that JA Canada’s work has a direct impact of $105 million on Canada’s economy each year. It also found that for every $1 received, JA Canada creates an annual return to society of $45. The study reports that JA Canada’s alumni are 50% more likely than the average Canadian to open their own business.
