The Public Policy Forum and TD Bank Group are partnering to take a closer look at the changing nature of work in Canada.

Through the three-year initiative, called the Future of Work, the forum will conduct research and engage stakeholders to investigate the ways Canadians can succeed in a changing workplace, according to a press release.

“We are fortunate to live in a country with an enviable standard of living and great potential for the future,” said Bharat Masrani, group president and chief executive officer of TD Bank Group, in the release. He added that the initiative will help identify what needs to be done to allow all Canadians to adapt and prosper.

“We are eager for the opportunity to work with a wide range of partners in figuring out how Canadians can ride the train of technological change without having the dignity they derive from work derailed in the process,” said Edward Greenspon, president and chief executive officer of the Public Policy Forum.

“These are complex issues with huge consequences. We need to get them right.”
