dc.description.abstract This study assesses the current perceptions of older workers, defined as aged 50 and over, in Lethbridge, Alberta and area. Specifically, the study addresses two research questions. The first seeks to determine the primary challenges facing older workers in their quest to find suitable employment. The second examines the value which older workers place on programs currently in place to assist in their search for employment. The intent of this study is to inform Government and private sector policies and programs as they relate to the provision of services which will alleviate the unemployment difficulties of older workers. A mixed methods approach was employed with the use of structured interviews and survey questionnaires. This results from this study suggested partial support for ageist attitudes and stereotyping as barriers to employment. There was also some support for the improvement of current employment programs targeted at older job seekers. en
