Bank of Canada Senior Deputy Governor Carolyn Rogers recently stated that there is a desperate need to focus on labour composition as well as workers’ skills and help improve Canada’s productivity.  

Currently, “Canada’s productivity has fallen from a “not great” record of producing 88 per cent of the value generated by the United States economy per hour in 1984 to just 71 per cent in 2022.” 

Rogers continued, Canadians are working in jobs that don’t take advantage of the skills they already possess…[d]oing better at matching jobs and workers is crucial to the future of Canada’s economy.”
