Digital Differences: The Impact of Automation on the Indigenous Economy in Canada

Digital Differences: The Impact of Automation on the Indigenous Economy

Published: July 6, 2020

Indigenous entrepreneurs and workers have made enormous strides in starting
business, forming credit and lending organizations for Indigenous business-operators,
and increasing the number of Indigenous employees in employment. Nonetheless,
several reports indicate that automation may disproportionately impact Indigenous
workers. This report investigates at a more granular level how technological change,
specifically automation, will affect Indigenous workers by industry and region across
Canada. This research builds on previous work that examined the implications of
automation in Canada generally, and on Indigenous workers in specific industries
abroad, by applying their methods to understand the impact of automation on
Indigenous workers in Canada.
