    Summit Overview
    The summit takes place on November 24 and will consist of three panel discussions that will take a deeper looking into specific measures our political leaders must consider to ensure a sharp and lasting recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Panel 1: Harnessing Canada’s Tax System For Recovery
    Looking towards recovery, the federal government can choose to spend money it doesn’t have or mobilize private capital for targeted recovery investments and lower the cost of doing business through micro tax reforms. Building on the work of our Think Growth campaign, this session will explore how Canada’s tax system can be harnessed for inclusive recovery and growth for Canadians and businesses of all size.

    Panel 2: Regulatory Recovery, Removing Red Tape So Business Can Grow
    Building on the work of our Regulate Smarter campaign, this session will discuss the impacts of regulatory burden in Canada, how to build on the federal government’s existing regulatory commitments and how Canada should leverage regulatory reform as a driver of growth in the current COVID economy.

    Panel 3: Canadian Transportation And Trade Infrastructure, 2020 And Beyond
    The February rail blockades and the COVID-19 pandemic have posed threats to Canada’s import and export-based economy. The Canadian and global supply chains have been especially affected by the pandemic and will require innovative and cost-effective solutions to mitigate the impacts on business operations. To do so will require coordination among all orders of government as well as better data, insight and increased investment in Canada’s multimodal transportation networks. Our discussion will focus on some of those efforts and will explore how, with the right investments, Canada can get back on track to not only meet pre-COVID levels of competitiveness, but to surpass them.
