Future skills: Soft skills matter

What are the future skills which will be needed given the exponential growth in technology fields such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented and virtual reality (AR, VR), data science, digital biology and biotech, medicine, nanotech, and digital fabrication, networks and computing systems, robotics, and autonomous vehicles? The rate of change is enough to make parents and educators heads’ spin but it is crucial that our employment, training, and educations systems are able to respond to this rapidly changing landscape. Having the right skills at the right time – and in the right place within Canada’s workforce – will support Canada’s ability to be competitive and prosperous.
