Response & Recovery: An Update on Ontario’s Plan to Protect our Progress in the Fight Against COVID-19, Support our Economy and Build a Stronger Province for the Future
In-Person Event – The Hon. Prabmeet Singh Sarkaria, President, Treasury Board Secretariat of Ontario
This Roundtable Luncheon will be our first in-person event since March 2020. In accordance with provincial public health guidelines, the C. D. Howe Institute will require attendees for in-person events to show proof of vaccination (i.e., a second-dose receipt for a two-dose vaccine series, or a single-dose receipt for a one-dose vaccine; these vaccines must be approved by Health Canada). Members and guests who cannot receive the vaccine due to a medical exemption can attend with a doctor’s note and proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the past 24 hours. Face masks will be mandatory during the event, except while eating. A 50-person capacity limit is set for the venue.
C.D. Howe Institute events and webinars are open to members and their guests.

Through his role as President of the Treasury Board, he is responsible for the province’s expenditure management efforts, the government’s internal audit work, and is the official employer of Ontario’s public servants. He also serves as Vice Chair of the province’s Future State Modernization Committee.
Prior to assuming leadership of the Treasury Board Secretariat, he held the role of Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction, during which time he was named one of the ‘Top 50 most influential Torontonians of 2020’ in Toronto Life magazine.

In April 2020, he and his wife, Sarpreet, welcomed their daughter, Devya, into the world. He is an avid sports fan who enjoys playing and watching golf, hockey, basketball, and football. If ever you have the opportunity to visit his office, you won’t fail to recognize which team won the 2019 NBA Championship.
Minister Sarkaria entered public service in order to advocate for hardworking families in Brampton South and all across Ontario. He’s committed to vocalizing the concerns of everyday people, who he is humbled to serve.
