There are currently more than one million vacant jobs in Canada, according to a 2022 report by Scotia Economics. The same report shows 40 per cent of organizations are facing near-record high labour shortages, limiting their capacity for growth. Part of the solution is immigration. But there are other considerations – such as investment in education, upskilling, and training, especially in view of digital transformation. At the same time, access to affordable housing may further exacerbate labour force challenges.
The Globe and Mail, in partnership with Century Initiative, will bring experts and leaders together to discuss how we might shape a long-term strategy to build the workforce of the future, compete globally, and achieve prosperity.
This event will be held both in person and virtually.
