2017 brought more discussions on the changing nature of work. Nationwide, the Canadian manufacturing sector is a bit like the “elephant in the room” – particularly when it comes to the role of robotics/automated machines and how manufacturing jobs will evolve in the coming years. Through a partnership with the Federal government for on-going commitments on Evergreen Labour Market Information (LMI) data collection and dissemination, EMC is at the forefront of monitoring these changes and providing insights for community-based solutions.
Changing Nature of Work
Many studies have called for a focus on “21st century skills” to enable innovation development through today’s and tomorrow’s business, technical and manufacturing essential skills. For the coming years, key questions are for Canadian manufacturers:
- What aspect of work do you replace with digitalization, robotics and/or automated machines?
- How will jobs and skills change, adapt or disappear?
- What type of new jobs, business and productivity models will be created?
