PPF is working with organizations across Canada to investigate how policy needs to respond to the challenges of the changing nature of work. Thanks to the support of TD Bank and the Government of Canada, we will hold a major event annually, conduct consultations across the country on different future of work topics, and lead in-depth policy research on specific questions. Between February and May 2019 we will release research papers on public anxiety about automation, the lifelong learning ecosystem, opportunities to improve Employment Insurance, new approaches to negotiating power between workers and employers, and the actual definition of ‘work’ and ‘worker’.
