Future of Work
Canada Beyond 150 Summary:
The Government of Canada (GoC) has articulated the importance of addressing pressures of globalization, digital transition, and protectionism by focusing on socio-economic inclusion. These complex issues need a multidisciplinary approach that touches many areas.
As part of Canada Beyond 150, our nine-person interdepartmental team looked at the changing nature of work: how automation, telepresence, aging, identity, and capital and asset formation can lead to prosperity and social inclusion.
We considered the traits, tools, places, and composition of work; how we find work; how we develop skills in a digital age; the nature of firms; and the character of the social contract.
