Please join MP Joyce Murray at her Friday, May 27, 2016 MP Breakfast Connections with Roslyn Kunin “Will it be possible to have a successful career in the 21st century?”
Conventional careers in the sense of full-time secure positions are becoming scarcer and the pace of change faster. Casual, part-time and contract work are becoming more prevalent. Within a few decades technologies already in development are predicted to render half of today’s jobs obsolete. While tough on older workers, Canadian youth – already stuck with nearly double the average unemployment rate (13.1% vs. 7.1%, April 2016) – will bear the brunt. Our friends, children and grandchildren need new tools and policies to help them succeed.
Dr. Kunin is an economist and labour market expert. She is currently chair of the board of directors of the Haida Enterprise Corporation and has been a Director of the Business Development Bank of Canada, chair of the Workers Compensation Board of British Columbia and member of the National Statistics Council of Statistics. Dr. Kunin holds the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee medal and the Order of Canada.
Please join me and one of Canada’s top labour market experts in discussing the challenges – and the keys to unlocking the door to a satisfying career of the future!
