Earlier this year, well-known labour economist Jim Stanford announced that his Centre for Future Work was establishing a Canadian Office. The Centre for Future Work is a progressive research institute, founded in 2016 in Australia.
The Centre is a unique centre of excellence on the full range of economic issues facing working people: including the future of jobs, wages and income distribution, skills and training, sector and industry policies, globalization, the role of government, public services, and more. The Centre also develops timely and practical policy proposals to help make the world of work better for working people and their families. The Centre is independent and non-partisan.
In Canada, the Centre operates in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and is housed in the CCPA’s office in Vancouver.
