Event Details

Canada, which turns 150 this July 1st, has long seemed to outsiders to be a citadel of decency, tolerance and good sense. Modern Canada’s social safety net is stronger than America’s; its gun-control laws saner. Today, in its lonely defence of liberal values, Canada seems downright heroic. In an age of seductive extremes, it remains reassuringly level-headed. The prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has become a symbol of a progressive nation. Canada welcomes refugees; it has made significant advances in its climate policy; and the government recently announced a $120bn infrastructure-investment plan that highlights support for projects reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

But is the current state of affairs sustainable? How can a small, open, liberal economy survive and thrive in a world heading towards protectionism? What does the Trump era mean for trade, clean energy and Canadian businesses overall? Canada also suffers from some of the stresses that feed populism in other rich countries. It has experienced a decline in manufacturing jobs, stagnant incomes for most of its citizens and rising inequality. And the shrinking of its middle class is worrisome.

For this special anniversary edition of The Canada Summit, Economist editors, policymakers, business decision-makers and leading critical thinkers will gather for a thought-provoking and forward-looking day of discussions. Join the conversation on the issues shaping Canada's business climate now and those that will influence the country's development for the next 150 years.
