TABE AGM and Presentation by Dr. Lawrence Schembri - Bank of Canada

Once again, it is time for our final major event of the 2016-17 season. TABE is honoured to have Dr. Lawrence Schembri from the Bank of Canada to provide the keynote address.  The event will start with Annual General Meeting of the Toronto Association for Business and Economics. Dr. Schembri’s discussion is off-the-record and closed to the media.  

Our Topic:  Four Puzzles within An Outlook

Dr. Schembri will discuss the Bank of Canada’s economic outlook, focusing on the key issues and related puzzles in their analysis.

Our Speaker – Dr. Lawrence Schembri
