Canada’s Prosperity Conundrum

We are excited to announce

the upcoming virtual 21st

Annual Research Money conference

 

May 3-5 2022

Tickets Now available !

CONFERENCE SUMMARY

Post-pandemic recovery is top of mind among leaders and citizens across the globe. For Canada, this preoccupation has a particular significance. Embedded in the discourse of policymakers, business leaders, academic thought leaders, researchers, and civil society is the promise of overcoming a persistent challenge: Canada’s subpar productivity and competitiveness in today’s global knowledge economy.
For decades Canadians have been wrestling with an uncomfortable question. Can we maintain the same level of prosperity that grew out of our natural resource endowments in today’s highly competitive, global economy in which knowledge drives wealth creation and improved quality of life?
