Work, Skills, Industry
With nearly 42% of Canadian jobs likely to be affected in some way by automation over the next two decades, and with the disruptive nature of social media, unprecedented access to big data, and analytic advances, all aspects of the workforce and management will need to adapt.
Canada’s competitiveness and prosperity therefore depend on building a resilient workforce by matching skills and employment opportunities, access to lifelong learning, as well as ensuring the full participation of the underemployed and unemployed, including equity-seeking groups and underserved communities.
As technological and skills innovation are key areas of research at Toronto Metropolitan University, we are ideally positioned to take the lead in investigating and developing tools and strategies that will advance inclusive, ethical, and sustainable economic growth and productive employment.
