Technologies would not endanger the workforce on a large scale

Newly released documents show senior federal government officials do not believe artificial intelligence and robots threaten large swaths of Canada's workforce.

Federal experts assessed a scenario in their work in 2019 apocalyptic in which automation would eliminate half of Canada's jobs exaggerated.

But those officials noted signs of fragility in some sectors of the economy that the government should be concerned about, such as how streaming services are redefining the production of music, television and films.

Other documents show that the government was informed before the summer that 11% of jobs in Canada could be automated in the next 15 to 20 years, and that 29% of existing jobs could be automated is likely to change significantly.

The Canadian Press obtained these documents through the Access to Information Act.
