2020 Employer Council of Champions Summit and Awards

The Future of Work and Immigration

March 11, 2020

This year’s Summit will explore how disruptive technologies are enhancing connectivity, new methods of seeking and retaining talent, and changing the nature of work. The gig economy, artificial intelligence, and big data are augmenting the workforce and radically changing how work is done.

Diversity and inclusion are key to the conversation about the future of work. Organizations will require innovative ideas to adjust their human resources and talent management strategies to effectively integrate diverse talent in an evolving economy.

Given this situation, what role will immigrants play in the future of work? How will employers position themselves to attract and include immigrant talent – so that both workplaces and immigrants benefit – in the new economy?

Join over 100 business, government, civic leaders, human resources professionals and subject matter experts in a dialogue about these issues and how to effectively include skilled immigrants in the workforce, and to celebrate employer excellence in Ottawa.

Keynote Speaker

Sunil Johal
Fellow, Brookfield Institute and Public Policy Forum
