The Future Skills Center announces a $ 37M investment for innovative and responsive solutions to the changing Canadian labour market
The Future Skills Center (CCF) has given the green light to 30 projects with a $ 37M investment to provide solutions to support Canadians making the transition to new jobs or industries. These innovative community-based programs attempt to meet basic needs by helping employers find workers with the skills they are looking for and by helping Canadians acquire the skills they need.
These 30 projects are the result of consultations with stakeholders in the Canadian skills ecosystem and the review of hundreds of submissions received following a call for proposals launched last year. The projects cover all regions of the country and various sectors with a priority focus on the needs of disadvantaged and under-represented groups.
Facing the challenge of digital transformation in the insurance sector: women at work
Alongside numerous key actors of Université Laval, such as the Centre de recherche en technologies de l’information et affaires (CeRTIA), the Académie de la transformation numérique (ATN), the Centre de recherche en données massives (CRDM) and the Centre de recherche et d’intervention sur l’éducation et la vie au travail (CRIEVAT) de l’Université Laval, the IID team is proud to support one of the projects selected by the CCF, “Facing the challenge of digital transformation in the insurance sector: women at work”.
In this project, consortium of researchers at Université Laval — who are tapped into international networks examining the implications of artificial intelligence and other digital innovations — and their partners will analyze the skills development needs for female workers, organizations, and the insurance sector to diagnose current, foreseeable (or unforeseeable) changes for the industry, creating training pathways and career support for female workers who may be displaced into more future-facing jobs.
The Future Skills Centre is investing $1.01 million into the two-year, first-of-its-kind project, which will build on an innovative network of scientific expertise in education, management, human resource management, information systems, and industrial relations. The research will also build a broader picture of the (relatively unexplored) labour market in Quebec.
