Developing, attracting, and training talent must be central to Canada’s digital strategy to attract global investment and give everyone an opportunity to benefit from the digital economy.
Every industry is moving toward the use of data, automation, AI, blockchain, and other increasingly high tech tools. That means a workforce with high-level digital skills is key to building our economy, national security, and innovation. Investing in digital skills in workforce development will also increase Canada’s global competitiveness. Building a diverse talent pool of digitally-skilled workers is also essential to ensure equal employment opportunities for all Canadians — especially those from First Nations and Indigenous communities.
