As our economy continues to adapt to new developments in technology and automation, Canada’s labour force needs to be properly equipped with skills to thrive.
The continued trend towards automation and technology-driven labour has created challenges for educators, employers, and jobseekers. The expansion of Canada’s high-tech industries means many employees don’t have the skills to meet industry demand. Employers are also expressing a need for workers with soft skills, such as problem-solving, literacy and communication.
By building a robust labour force with the skills required to thrive in the future, we are building resiliency for business to thrive.
