RBC CEO: Ignoring the Future of Work, Canada’s ‘Quiet Crisis’

On Vancouver Island, TimberWest is searching for foresters who can harvest data as well as trees. In Alberta, Suncor is working with First Nations peoples to build a new pipeline of talent, with aboriginal youth who can work with new technologies such as self-driving trucks. And in Toronto, Saint Elizabeth Health Care is looking to advance digital and communications skills to assist patients in their homes or remotely.

Canadians and Canadian companies are embracing the next generation of tech like never before. Unfortunately, the way we go about educating and employing the next generation of Canadians isn’t keeping pace. It’s our quiet crisis and it’s about to get a lot louder if we don’t take the future of work more seriously.
