Rising to the Challenge of New Global Realities 1 - [Event, Oct 7, 2021]:  Rising to the Challenge of New Global RealitiesForging a new path for sustainable and inclusive prosperity in Canada

The reopening of the economy and the election of a new Parliament provides an opportunity for the country to address a series of long-standing and more recent societal challenges with the same determination as the pandemic itself. The following critical issues leave Canada no choice but to forge new routes to an improved future:

  • Accelerating technological change
  • The shifting nature of work
  • Rising demands for equality and inclusion
  • Disrupted immigration patterns
  • Climate-induced energy transformation
  • Emerging international rivalries

To this end, a working group of 12 members of Canada’s Senate undertook a study in late 2020 to examine where our nation should turn in developing the next wave of prosperity and how to ensure this success is shared by all. The Senate Prosperity Action Group heard presentations from more than 40 experts from across the economic and social spectrum, which will culminate in a report with recommended policy actions to be released in the weeks ahead.

The Public Policy Forum and Senate Speaker George J. Furey invite you to a special event featuring the Senate Prosperity Action Group and some of the most respected Canadian political leaders of the past half-century including John Manley, former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, Frances Donald, Chief Economist, Manulife Financial, Tabatha Bull, President & CEO, Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, Monique Leroux, Chair, Industry Strategy Council and Chris Ragan, Professor, McGill University and former Chair, Eco-Fiscal Commission. Our panelists will unpack the report and discuss how Canadian society can work together to achieve sustainable and inclusive prosperity. We also look forward to welcoming the Rt. Hon. Joe Clark and the Hon. Christy Clark for a fireside chat on Building Consensus which will be moderated by PPF President & CEO, Edward Greenspon.
