Applied research at colleges and institutes (Colleges and Institutes Canada)

Results from CICan’s 2017-2018 applied research survey show that colleges and institutes continue to occupy a critical space in Canada’s innovation ecosystem. Thanks to their many partnerships, they are having a tangible impact across all sectors of the economy and in communities all over the country.

Paging Dr. Data: How the Coming Skills Revolution Can Transform Healthcare (RBC)

Canada’s aging population is poised to become a silver tsunami that will add another $120 billion in healthcare costs over the next decade. To harness the full power of technology in a country where one in four people will be seniors, the healthcare sector will need to embrace new ways of working.

Promoting Careers in the Skilled Trades to Indigenous Youth in Canada (Canadian Apprenticeship Forum)

This report describes experiential learning opportunities in high school for students interested in learning about the skilled trades. Examples of Indigenous-focused initiatives and the impacts on student outcome are described.

2019 Nonprofit Diversity Practices (Nonprofit HR)

Nonprofit HR surveyed non-profits in North America about their diversity efforts, compiling data about diversity practices of social impact organizations.

What jobs are affected by AI? Better-paid, better-educated workers face the most exposure (Brookings)

This report establishes job exposure levels by analyzing the overlap between AI-related patents and job descriptions. In this way, the paper homes in on the impacts of AI specifically and does it by studying empirical statistical associations as opposed to expert forecasting.
