In an industry that’s growing at an alarming pace, it’s no surprise that Canada is one of the fastest-growing markets in the world.
And as Canada has grown more rapidly in recent years, its tech industry has become increasingly important to Canada’s economy.
But as more Canadians are starting to feel the pinch of an aging population and growing economic pressure, the technology industry is experiencing a crisis of its own.
The boom in tech is expected to last at least another 10 years, according to data from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a think-tank.
Canada’s growth in the tech industry, fuelled by rapid growth in computing and technology services, is set to continue.
But with the economy increasingly dependent on tech, many Canadians worry the economy could be in trouble.
The tech boom In the early 1990s, Canada was a hotbed of innovation.
Today, Canada ranks fifth in the OECD for innovation, behind the United States, France, the United Kingdom and Germany.
That’s largely due to the country’s high tech sector.
Canada has also been the world’s most educated and fastest-growth economy, with more than 20 per cent of its population pursuing postsecondary education.
But even as the tech boom has come roaring back, the country still has a long way to go in terms of innovation and development.
In the 1990s and early 2000s, many companies started out with only a few employees.
Today there are nearly 5,000 companies with 50 to 100 employees, according the OECD.
Canada also has one of highest rates of women in the top 10 tech jobs globally.
Canada still has some of the lowest unemployment rates in the developed world, but that’s largely because there are a lot of skilled workers in the country.
Despite the booming tech industry and booming jobs, Canada has a lot more work to do to keep pace with the world, according a new report by the OECD and the Centre for Global Development.
The report, released Tuesday, estimates that Canada’s labor force is set for a 15-per-cent drop in the next 15 years, a decline that is expected not only to impact the labour market but also the economy as a whole.
The report notes that Canada has already been one of only three developed countries that has lost its labour force participation rate, or the percentage of workers that don’t have a job.
That is due to rising rates of immigration and a lack of available jobs.
The Canada that the OECD is forecasting will be a country of fewer than 2.5 million people by 2050.
“The trend is really not good for Canada’s labour market, and we are losing the labour force,” said Anne Mearns, an economist with the Centre.
Mearns said that, in her view, the tech and other sectors are being hit hard by the rising cost of living, the high cost of education, rising healthcare costs and a variety of other factors.
And she says the report is an important wake-up call for policymakers.
The OECD expects the tech sector to be one of Canada’s biggest economic drivers in the years ahead.
But the report warns that a number of other sectors, including healthcare, education and social services, could be even more vulnerable to economic slowdown.
The centre’s research shows that in the coming decades, Canada could be one that is increasingly dominated by large tech firms that have a huge impact on the economy.
It also highlights that, because of the current economic situation, Canada may have to wait longer to achieve full economic recovery.
According to the report, the biggest challenges facing Canada’s technology sector are likely to come from a shortage of skilled labour and the impact of rising housing costs and the global financial crisis on the Canadian economy.
A more positive development than the downturn in technology is the rising numbers of young Canadians entering the job market.
But the labour shortage also poses some challenges for the tech economy.
“The technology industry needs more young people coming into the labour pool, and more Canadians,” said Mearn.
“And it’s going to take a long time to create those workers, because they need to be educated, and they need some skills. It’s going
