The Fifth Regent Debate with Mitzie Hunter, Jason Kenney, Naheed Nenshi & John Tory

Regent Debate: Be it Resolved: Canada's immigration levels are too high to support the economic wellbeing of new immigrants, or that of the broader population

Dec 06, 2023 |

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.

The C.D. Howe Institute is the best common room in the country.

Senior Advisor, Bennett Jones

The C.D. Howe Institute plays a very important role in stimulating national debate and reflection on key topics that will shape our future. For me, small and medium-sized enterprise entrepreneurship and success are important areas of focus, and the Institute is very effective in developing and sharing policy ideas which will lead to SME growth as well as enhance Canada’s prosperity and competitiveness.

Why should we support the Institute? Because it is only through support from civil society that an independent voice such as the C.D. Howe can survive.
