Goodbye Unemployment, Hello Labour Shortages (Regina)
Guest Speaker: Brian Lee Crowley, President of The Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (AIMS)
In the 1960s, our huge Boomer generation helped create widespread joblessness and anxiety. That, plus Quebec’s recurring threat to break-up the country, caused Canada to jettison its traditional values — a ferocious work ethic, a commitment to the family as the most important social institution, a suspicion of overweening government and an aversion to dependence — in favour of a vast expansion of the welfare state. But the tide is about to turn with a vengeance. Population ageing is going to bring us labour shortages on a vast scale. Not only will that will change everything we have assumed about Canada in the last 50 years, but the west will lead the way in the transformation that is coming.
