Thursday October 25, 2017




Canada’s economy has performed relatively well over the past year but now faces significant headwinds.

Eroding tax and regulatory competitiveness, combined with an uncertain tradeenvironment, threaten growth and continued job creation.

According to a recent PwC report, US tax reform alone has put 635,000 jobs and $85 billion in GDP at risk.

Only one in seven CEOs surveyed bythe Business Council express confidence in the competitiveness of Canada’s business climate.

Join the OEA to hear from John Manley, outgoing President and CEO of the Business Council of Canada, on what can be done to shore up Canadian competitiveness, attract investment and create jobs.
