Details

The C.D. Howe Institute is an independent not-for-profit research institute whose mission is to raise living standards by fostering economically sound public policies.

Widely considered to be Canada's most influential think tank, the Institute is a trusted source of essential policy intelligence, distinguished by research that is nonpartisan, evidence-based and subject to definitive expert review. The Institute's research is national in scope and we host policy events across the country.

Throughout my career, whether in the public or private sector, I have witnessed firsthand how influential and helpful C.D. Howe Institute research has been for senior leaders in government and business as they wrestle with current challenges.

From the time I was a student, through my years as Ontario Finance Minister, to the present day; the C.D. Howe Institute has been a thought leader on Canadian public policy. It is a real privilege to be associated with the Institute as it continues to advocate thoughtful debate, and solutions, to a range of society's most challenging issues.
