"The automotive and mobility industry has been experiencing one of its most significant transformations with the development of smart vehicles and innovative mobility services."

"To be able to capitalize on all of the opportunities that this mobility revolution presents, new approaches to developing the future skills and talent are also needed."

"In addition to highlighting the booming demand for and high interest in future mobility roles, Indeed reported that, according to an analysis of job posts and data from recruiters, individuals interested in working in this rapidly evolving sector need to equip themselves with advanced skills. For example, most of the top skills listed in autonomous vehicle job postings are related to computer programming and artificial intelligence."

The following news article was introduced to us by one of our Board Members, John Holmes. John found this article to be of interest and wanted to share it with our audience. "This report on the Impact of Technology on Warehousing Work might be of interest given the prevalence of some warehousing/distribution centres in eastern Ontario. The report received a lot of press coverage in both North America (e.g. article in yesterday’s G&M Business Section) and Europe – through my academic network I know one the authors Nik Theodore." explains John.
