Economic projections sure have changed.

It has been six months since we released our “Canada’s Growth Currency: Digital Talent Outlook 2023” report, which aimed to project where Canada's top growth opportunities could lead us.

“The waves of change sweeping our economy are rapidly shaping a new industrial paradigm. Sustainable business is increasingly seen as a strategic advantage, paving the way for growth and increased employment prospects for Canadians. Preparing an innovation ready workforce for tomorrow’s green and hyper-connected economy is a strategic imperative for Canada in the coming years.” - Namir Anani, President & CEO

This study identifies six key innovation growth areas across the country:

  • Cleantech - carbon-neutral and climate-positive energy and services;
  • Clean Resources - the next generation of natural resource extraction;
  • Advanced Manufacturing - kickstarting production with technology;
  • Interactive Digital Media - tuning in and experiencing design;
  • Health and Biotechnology - innovative well-being; and
