Learning Bulletins, sharing knowledge and insights

We are dedicated to helping Canadians gain the skills they need to thrive in a changing labour market. We are producing a series of Learning Bulletins in which we share the insights we glean and the lessons we learn with our project partners and stakeholders.

These bulletins are short reports that gather research and early findings from our innovation projects to help navigate the future of work. They address the threats and opportunities in our rapidly evolving economy and the best approaches to support Canadians as they adapt to today’s challenges while also preparing for the future of work. 

We are committed to sharing our learning. These bulletins will preview the questions we are exploring, as well as disseminating the lessons and early evidence from our investments in over 140 pilot projects by FSC and our consortium partner, Blueprint. Together, we are testing new solutions for skills innovations across the country with a particular focus on inclusive approaches to support underserved groups and populations.

This issue examines challenges to the country and the workforce following the twin health and economic crises of the pandemic. It explores the role of training for employment success, the value of agility, employer engagement on sectoral solutions, and inclusive support for job seekers. It also shares the accomplishments and goals of 10 projects that received additional funding in May 2021 after demonstrating early success

This bulletin looks at the impact of artificial intelligence on the Canadian workforce. Since AI is evolving at a rapid pace, the paper explores the disruption and innovation inherent in technological advances and the accompanying risks and opportunities.

About our innovation projects

The Future Skills Centre launched in 2019 with a mandate to innovate, test, and learn about the future of skills and work in Canada.  We are dedicated to developing and testing skills innovations across Canada that create a brighter future of work for all. We work with partners in every province and territory to experiment with new approaches, models, and tools around skilling, in close collaboration with training providers, employers, and others in the skills ecosystem. We are early in our learning journey, but we commit to sharing what we hear and learn with our stakeholders and innovation project partners.
