This was the second online policy seminar in the Challenges and Opportunities for Social Policy in the Coming Decade series. The policy seminars were organized in part by policy sector, focusing on the tools available in different sectors; however, each panel considered how policies interconnect, and how vulnerable groups intersect to create concentrations of advantage and disadvantage.   

Existing income support programs, such as employment insurance, have increasingly been shown to leave many workers unprotected against job losses. New and rapidly changing labour market landscapes indicate a need for rethinking income security both in and out of work. Building on insights and experiences from Canada and other countries over the last few years, this panel will examine key questions related to income and employment security in the context of new world of work.
