    Preparing for the Future of Work in Canada

    Automation, digitalisation and technological change are profoundly affecting local labour markets in Canada as elsewhere across the OECD. Automation offers the opportunity to boost productivity, increasing prosperity and raising living standards. It can however also create losers, as workers who lose jobs to automation may not always have the skills needed in a changing labour market and might struggle to find new jobs. Places more vulnerable to automation than others tend to have some characteristics in common. Within Ontario, Canada’s most populous province and the driver of the Canadian economy, regions facing a higher risk of automation have larger employment shares in goods-producing sectors, a prevalence of rural communities and an older labour force. This study sheds light on main lessons and policy principles to prepare people, places and firms for the future of work in Canada. This report comes at a time when policy makers, citizens and businesses are challenged by the COVID-19 crisis that will generate a profound reflection on our production and consumption habits, as well as on local economy recovery policies. The COVID-19 crisis might also contribute to making the case for further automation in the workplace, as employers adopt new technology to increase productivity.

    Synthesising good practices in fiscal federalism - Key recommendations from 15 years of country surveys

    The design of intergovernmental fiscal relations can help to ensure that tax and spending powers are assigned in a way to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth. Decentralisation can enable sub-central governments to provide better public services for households and firms, while it can also make intergovernmental frameworks more complex, harming equity. The challenges of fiscal federalism are multi-faceted and involve difficult trade-offs. This synthesis paper consolidates much of the OECD’s work on fiscal federalism over the past 15 years, with a particular focus on OECD Economic Surveys. The paper identifies a range of good practices on the design of country policies and institutions related strengthening fiscal capacity delineating responsibilities across evels of government and improving intergovernmental co-ordination.

    Behavioural Insights and Organisations - Fostering Safety Culture

    Behavioural insights (BI) has become widely used by public bodies around the world, mostly towards improving the way policies are implemented and influencing individual behaviour. As the field of BI evolves to tackle more complex policy issues, there is widespread perception that BI can and should go beyond the study of individual-level decision processes for higher impact. This report presents research on applying BI to changing the behaviour of organisations, with a focus on fostering elements of a safety culture in the energy sector. It presents comparative findings from experiments with energy regulators in Canada, Ireland, Mexico and Oman, as well as guidance for applying BI to safety culture going forward.

    Patterns of innovation, advanced technology use and business practices in Canadian firms

    This paper uses a distributed microdata analysis approach to map patterns of technology adoption in Canadian firms, exploring the relationship between technology adoption, business practices and innovation. Prepared by the OECD NESTI secretariat in collaboration with Statistics Canada, the paper leverages a unique enterprise database combining information on innovation, technology adoption and the use of selected business practices. This work suggests a number of possible pathways for selecting and defining priority technology and business practices for data collection and reporting, implementing recommendations in the 2018 Oslo Manual on enablers and objectives of business innovation, and identifying potential synergies between business innovation, management and ICT, and other surveys focused on various aspects of technology adoption.
