However, remote work is not possible or desirable for all occupations. Thus, the objective of this report is to understand how remote work might affect the Four County Region’s labour force. To do this, telework ability, business preferences, and employee preferences are analyzed at the provincial and local levels where possible. Additionally, this report examines the potential effects of remote work on job vacancies and commuter trends.
