About the Skills For An Innovation-Driven Economy Work Stream

We identify the skills that Canadians and innovative companies will need to remain competitive, and pilot programs that help them gain those skills – so that companies and workers alike can navigate and thrive in an innovation-driven economy.

An innovation economy needs a workforce with up-to-date skills. But as new technologies are introduced and the innovation economy grows, the skills sought by employers are continually shifting. It can be challenging for Canadians to know which skills they need to remain relevant throughout their careers. Employers themselves struggle to anticipate what their future needs might be.

Canadian businesses, educators, policy makers and others will need continuing and up-to-date insights on which skills are in high demand, in local labour markets and in different industries, as well as ideas on how to design effective training programs, ensure that Canadians can access them, and match talent to employer needs.
