About this workshop:
In this 60 minute workshop, you’ll be introduced to the rapidly growing world of digital nomads. Accelerated by workplaces shifts during the COVID-19 pandemic, there have never been more opportunities to work and live in ways that are drastically different from the 9 to 5, location-locked, school-work-retire lifestyles that dominated the last century. Digital nomads embrace the ability to work from anywhere and to design a life on our terms. For Canadian digital nomads, we now have the ability to work remotely while travelling domestically anywhere within Canada, and to live and work internationally in a wide range of locations, for long stretches of time. Moreover, with the exciting announcement of Digital Nomad Visas here in Canada, there are now exciting opportunities for a wide range of communities to attract talented digital nomads to their ecosystems.
