About These Reports

Employment in 2030 Action Labs is the bookend of the Employment in 2030 initiative. Building upon these efforts to date, Action Labs explores how to translate the Forecast of Canadian Occupational Growth (FCOG), and existing sources of labour market information into tangible solutions that could help job seekers and workers prepare for their future.
