  • Regent Debate: Is Canada Facing an Existential Crisis to Competitiveness?

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

The C.D. Howe Institute is pleased to announce its second Regent Debate on another essential policy issue facing Canadians: economic competitiveness.

As the United States continues to roll out new tax and regulatory reforms, questions arise as to whether Canada will lag behind its southern neighbour. Low productivity and innovation rates, as well as declining private investment could dampen Canada’s appeal when attempting to attract investment. On the other hand, Canada is seen as economically stable, accessible and a safe harbour in choppy geopolitical waters.

Does Canada really have a competitiveness problem? Or are these stated concerns overblown? Panel to be announced.

The Institute’s Regent Debate series has been made possible through a generous donation by Aaron and Heather Regent.

Please visit the Regent Debate website for more information on the Institute’s debate series.
