Executive Summit Series

Our Executive Summit Series are quarterly virtual events that bring together senior executives and thought leaders for a dialogue on top issues affecting Canadian business.

These half-day virtual conferences will dive deep into discussions surrounding the specific measures our political leaders need to consider to ensure a sharp and lasting recovery for all Canadians.

At each event, participants will hear from our President and CEO, Perrin Beatty, Canada’s most influential business leaders and members of the federal government as we look towards harnessing the creativity of Canadian businesses to ignite the innovative public policies needed to foster a sustainable economic recovery.
