The Intelligence Revolution
Future-proofing Canada’s workforce
Over the next decade, the future of work will be shaped by a completely new force: the “Intelligence Revolution”.

These developments will change what a job means, affecting the work we do and how we do it. The report introduces a series of new work archetypes based on the future-proofed capabilities we believe Canadians will need to succeed. It also includes recommendations for business executives, government leaders, business, and workers themselves that we believe must be implemented to put Canada on the path to success.

We then grouped these into eight work archetypes, each of which comprises several of these key capabilities:
