The Future of Work in Canada: Bridging the Gap
A new study by the Labour Market Information Council (LMIC), The Future of Work in Canada: Bridging the Gap, summarizes the key findings and major gaps found in research on the future of work.
The research reveals three recent megatrends:
1) technological advancement, 2) demographic shifts, and 3) climate change.
Workforce Planning Hamilton's recent employer consultations to inform our 2018 Labour Market Plan show that demographic shifts are affecting the local labour market.
As noted in the Future of Work in Canada report, and backed by WPH research, an aging population, and an increased average age of the workforce is having an impact on labour market challenges experienced in Hamilton.
