The Next Economy

The Next Economy

The Next Economy foresight project explores part of Canada’s economic future. It looks at how key international and domestic changes could interact over the next 10 to 15 years. It identifies the key economic challenges and opportunities that could emerge. 

The project relies on the insights of government, academic, business and other non-government experts. That insight suggests that in 2025 the Canadian economy will be automated, technology-intense and networked. It is expected to be globalized, urbanized and sustainable. It will be competitive yet collaborative.
