The Future of Work

Thursday, April 19, 2018; 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Halifax City Hall (Halifax Hall) 1841 Argyle Street.

 

 

The Pearson Centre is a progressive think tank that seeks to find innovative solutions to the challenges facing our society. The Economy for Tomorrow is one of the priority areas.

 

The Future of Work is becoming increasingly unclear as the gig economy grows and we anticipate that the worker of today and tomorrow will increasingly be self-employed. The skills needed will continue to rapidly evolve requiring increased specialization while having strong general transferable skills. We also know that Canada can do better to ensure equality of opportunity and advancement for all Canadians. As we head into the unknown, we want to try develop the best projections possible. And for this future, we want to discuss the role of governments, the education system, employers, labour and community organizations.

Combating Hate & Racism

Friday, April 20, 10:30 am to 12:00 noon

at

Halifax City Hall, (Halifax Hall) 1841 Argyle Street.

 

The Pearson Centre is an independent progressive think-tank that seeks creative solutions to the major challenges we face in society. We are in the process of hosting conversations across the country on combating hate and racism with a prime focus on what should be done by the federal government and at the national level. What can be done to learn from each other and share solutions across the country.

 

Arif Virani, MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Canadian Heritage (Multiculturalism) will make opening comments on the government’s plans on this issue.

 

You are invited to join the dialogue.

 

A cross section of community groups, government organizations and MPs have been invited.
