In this impact paper, we examine the feasibility of transitioning workers from occupations susceptible to automation to rapidly growing jobs in the digital economy. We define this shift as a transition from high-risk, low-mobility (HRLM) occupations to rapid-growth digital occupations.
To whom are pathways to rapid-growth occupations in the digital economy open? Digital occupations are often specialized in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Due to the nature of these jobs, how long will upskilling take? And which Canadian provinces have the highest transition potential to the digital economy?
