Local labour markets across the OECD are undergoing a fundamental shift as the skills required to succeed in work are significantly changing. Automation and digitalisation will lead to creative destruction with jobs being lost and others being created in Canada. Estimates of possible automation of tasks across the OECD suggest that 14% of jobs face a high likelihood of automation and another 32% are likely to face significant changes in the next 10-20 years.

Using a world café format, this session aims to generate practical advice on how local workforce strategies can be redesigned for the future of work by discussing the key issues and identifying solutions.
