Coalition for a Better Future Campus Tour
The Coalition for a Better Future is a diverse group of Canadian leaders and organizations – across business, labour and civil society – working together to achieve a more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous Canada.
Each of us brings to the table a unique perspective, but we are united in our belief that economic growth is necessary for the kind of Canada we want. We need a stronger economy to produce rising incomes, afford social programs, and finance Canada’s transition to a cleaner environment.
This discussion with the Honourable Lisa Raitt, the Honourable Anne McLellan, and Susannah Pierce will discuss climate challenge, energy transition and reaching net zero; productivity growth; representation of women in executive positions; and Canada's economic position, both domestic and globally. A Q&A and networking will follow the moderated chat.
