Running the economy remotely : potential for working from home during and after COVID-19 / by Zechuan Deng, René Morissette and Derek Messacar. : CS45-28/1-2020-24E-PDF

"Physical distancing measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in a large number of Canadians working from home, many for the first time. This sudden transition in how the economy is operating raises questions about how many jobs can reasonably be performed from home. While working from home is a temporary response to the pandemic for many people, for others this transition might serve as the catalyst for a new way of doing business for years to come. To provide new insights into this important issue, this article estimates the number of jobs in Canada that can plausibly be performed from home under normal circumstances—the "telework capacity" of the economy—and compares that estimate with actual telework activity reported early into the pandemic. Then, it considers which types of jobs can be done from home, where they are located and who holds them."
