Technological Change and the Future of Work in Canada

This project will assess the impact that large-scale technological and demographic trends will have on the demand and supply of labour in Canada and identify potential solutions to mitigate the effects of labour shortages on the Canadian economy.

The Future Skills Centre is a forward-thinking centre for research and collaboration dedicated to preparing Canadians for employment success and meeting the emerging talent needs of employers. As a pan-Canadian community, we bring together experts and organizations across sectors to rigorously identify, assess, and share innovative approaches to develop the skills and work environments to drive prosperity and inclusion.
