Automation, New Business Models and Employment : some prospective thinking from a Quebec-based economist

Eric Noël spoke about the future of employment in the context of Quebec’s demographic, technological and economic adjustments at the opening of a workforce summit in February 2017. In January 2018, l’Institut du Québec, a joint venture between the Conference Board of Canada and HEC Montréal, published this research as an essay that explores the key challenges and some solutions associated with the rise of the “automatons” and disruptive business. We thank l’Institut for its financial and technical support in creating and communicating this document. The essay is available here.  You can also view a French-interview on CBC (RDI) here.
