One of the answers is that our leaders are looking to the future and finding ways to improve Oshawa to ensure that good jobs, great healthcare, arts, culture and more are available to all of us who live here. Together we have a lot of work to do.
In a time of unprecedented technological change and competitive pressure, many business leaders in Oshawa and beyond are losing sleep trying to figure out how to future-proof their organizations.

· 35% of Canadian companies have experienced digital disruption over the last 3 years; and
· Just under 50% of executives said they don’t know what their industry will look like in the next three years.
