Shock-proofing the future of work
We are making a significant $32 million investment in projects supporting workers and employers in Canada.
The 64 funded projects explore ways that evolving or emerging sectors and technologies can support workers displaced from socio-economic shocks as well as strengthening the economy of tomorrow.
As Canada faces the reality of an extended recovery period for many sectors and populations, the launch of these projects will explore emerging opportunities to support longer term views for skills and employment development.
By testing real world solutions, we aim to help workers — especially those facing multiple barriers to full employment – in acquiring the skills they need to thrive despite changes in the workforce.
