Report predicts labour market shifts, discusses pathways into jobs in the clean economy

A new report released by The Conference Board of Canada and The Future Skills Centre predicts significant labour market shifts both in Canada and globally. The research shows that the changes in labour markets will result in some careers growing while others become obsolete, and that one in five Canadian employees are working in careers that are both vulnerable to automation and are difficult to transition out of. The research examines how workers can transition into jobs in the clean economy. “Career transition is essential to the flexibility of our economy, but workers will always need a reskilling phase to transition towards a new sector,” said Samir Khan, FSC Senior Research and Evaluation Associate.
