The Conference Board of Canada’s Global Commerce Centre (GCC) held a strategic foresight workshop on November 19, 2018. Participants explored four plausible futures based on different levels of openness to global trade and adopting AI.
Workshop participants developed narratives that explain how each scenario will evolve through 2035, what global value chains will
look like then, what threats and opportunities Canadian businesses will face, and which regulations could best ensure AI is safely
and reliably integrated in the economy.
