Why Sponsor a C.D. Howe Institute Event?

When you sponsor a C.D. Howe Institute event, you are aligning your company with a respected think tank whose output has a demonstrated impact on public policy outcomes in Canada.

Event sponsorships are crucially important in promoting the discussion of relevant policy issues that often lead to published research. Event sponsors allow the Institute to strengthen its voice and raise the profile of the issues that have a direct impact on Canadian public policy.

As a privately funded public good, the C.D. Howe Institute would not be able to undertake important projects without the support of our dedicated stakeholders. We have grown this portfolio significantly over the past year and have been fortunate to partner with industry leaders, whose generosity has helped us achieve a new level of success in this area.

Benefits of Sponsorship:

The Institute provides a number of sponsor benefits, the most important of which is the opportunity to collaborate with the Institute on the event agenda. Sponsor suggestions regarding specific event details such as the selection and invitation of event speakers, general structure of the day and topics of discussion are welcome.  Other benefits include the ability to register up to five participants for the event at no cost and a generous recognition package which will ensure brand visibility on sponsorship boards and event materials.
