Guiding Workforce Transitions as Canada Shifts to Net Zero Emissions

The economic disruption resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic has provided the opportunity to rebuild in a more sustainable way as Canada moves to achieve a cleaner economy, including Net Zero emissions by 2050.

As industries transition to fit into this clean economy, so follows a redistribution of employment and the types of skills needed among the workforce. 

The Building Skills for a Clean Economy report identifies opportunities and shares learnings for workers with transferable skills in sectors at risk of disruption by the green transition, and helps identify new employment opportunities within the cleantech sector.
