Canada’s Human Capital

An aging population and increased global competition for talent requires that Canada work harder to attract, retain and develop its human capital.  Employers have a responsibility to contribute to this effort by ensuring healthy, diverse and inclusive workplaces.

Industry and Innovation

To succeed in today’s global economy, Canada needs a strategy that brings ideas to life and enhances the country’s competitive advantages.

Economic Strategy

Sound fiscal policy, investments to enhance growth and productivity, and competitive tax rates are fundamental to success in the global economy.

Resources and the Environment

Canada is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, which are the source of much of the country’s prosperity. Canadian energy producers and mining companies are key enablers of the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Canada’s Place in the World

Canada’s prosperity relies on global stability, the rules-based multilateral trading system, cooperation among like-minded partners and respect for sovereign states.
