Canada 360° Economic Summit

It is THE premier event for business, government and key Canadian leaders to shape the national economic agenda.

Our annual Canada 360° Economic Summit works to mobilize the Canadian business community to apply its ingenuity to find the bold policy solutions needed for Canada to compete in a changing economic landscape. It is THE premier event for business, government and key Canadian leaders to shape the national economic agenda.

On February 8, 2023, marked our fourth annual Canada 360° economic summit – focusing on seizing opportunities in disruptive times, from soaring inflation and a changing labour market to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine and extreme climate events.

Seizing Opportunities in Disruptive Times

Beyond the impacts of the past three years, Canada’s economic landscape is facing a complex new set of challenges. From soaring inflation and shifting demographic trends, to an uncertain global geopolitical landscape and an accelerating number of extreme climate events, Canadians are living through disruptive times. Our Canada 360° Economic Summit has looked at how Canadian business leaders can better understand the challenges ahead and seize the opportunity to chart a clear path forward for all Canadians.
