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.

“In a world of heightened disparate views and polarized thinking, it is encouraging to watch this institute perform. The C.D. Howe Institute has an array of expertise and demonstrates courage in tackling key issues faced by Canada today. I am honoured to be invited to play a small part.”

The C.D. Howe Institute provides a forum for objective, nonpartisan public policy debate. The outcome of those discussions – sensible, practical and pragmatic recommendations for government and the private sector are sorely needed in today’s highly polarized public square. I am honoured to have been invited to contribute to the discussion.
