Canada’s AI imperative:
Public policy’s critical moment

Artificial intelligence (AI) prosperity means that AI improves business productivity, government effectiveness, and Canada’s future. It means using AI to advance Canadian values like fairness and a reasonable expectation of privacy while protecting our rights, such as freedom from discrimination. And it means making sure that Canadians who are negatively affected by the transition to an AI economy are protected and offered new opportunities. It means building a world where Canadians and Canadian businesses understand, trust, and use AI throughout their everyday lives.

Achieving AI prosperity depends on public policy leadership. Our report identifies three action areas for such prosperity, describes the foundations needed for AI-driven growth and success, and sets out recommendations for government and business to achieve them.

Widespread AI adoption will fundamentally change how Canadians work. We need to better equip Canadians for a changing labor market and prepare them for an AI-driven world of work.
