The intelligence revolution: Future-proofing Canada’s workforce
Waves of change are disrupting the Canadian workforce. Automation, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, machine learning, and other technologies are revolutionizing industries, transforming workplaces, and even redefining what it means to hold a job. The pace will only gather speed. We call this transformation the Intelligence Revolution, and we believe it holds tremendous opportunities for Canada. This report is designed to provide insight into this new world of work-insight that leads to action. We aim to jumpstart a meaningful discussion among Canadian business executives, government leaders, and workers themselves not just about how to survive in the Intelligence Revolution but how to thrive in it. To this end, we outline the future-proofed capabilities Canadians will need to succeed in the Intelligence Revolution and describe a series of the new work archetypes we envision as the necessary foundation for the future of work. And finally, we offer a series of recommendations for Canadian government, business, and workers that we believe must be implemented to put us on the path to success.
