Canada 360° Economic Summit 2020

January 30, 2020 | Toronto | MaRS Centre

The Canadian economy is undergoing a monumental transformation. Geopolitical tensions are disrupting longstanding economic and business models. Exponential advances in technology are accelerating the pace of change. What is Canada’s economic strategy in this shifting landscape? How do we ensure our businesses remain competitive?

While the degree of change can be uncomfortable or even destructive, it can also contain the seeds of opportunity. Canadian businesses are driving change every day with bold ideas and new inventions.

The inaugural Canada 360° Economic Summit will harness the ingenuity of the business community to ignite the creativity that will help Canada thrive in a rapidly changing world.
