Ontario 360 Transition Briefings 2022 – The Future Of Work

The nature of work in Ontario is transforming, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated those changes. It has also exposed the precarity of many sectors of the economy. The effects of automation, the gig economy, and job polarization are already being felt by the average Ontarian, and these effects will only be amplified over time. To protect workers, both now and in the future, Ontario needs to embrace these changes while doing everything in its power to protect and support workers during this time of unprecedented change.
