Wave after wave of rapid technological change is happening in Canada.

Some workers are at high risk of having their jobs automated, and have few opportunities to transition to other occupations—especially without significant retraining. But there is still no consensus on the proportion of jobs that could be fully automated or transformed by technology. It’s critical that Canadian leaders understand how this will shift our labour market. So how do we know where to start?

This 60-minute complimentary webinar will feature Future Skills Centre research on automation and job futures, conducted by The Conference Board of Canada’s Innovation and Technology knowledge area. It will highlight the most vulnerable industries and job types—ones with high concentrations of high-risk, low-mobility (HRLM) employment.

Get an inside look, and go beyond reacting to technological changes after they happen. Use this webinar to guide your public or private organization’s resources on the people and skill transitions that need it the most.
