Rebooting the Economy: What is the role of government in the transforming economy?  brought together expert stakeholders to gain a deeper sense of the overall state of the Canadian economy, better understand the changing role of government, and discuss how public policy can facilitate recovery and growth. This report summarizes the discussion that day, including four key messages:

  • The worst of the recession is behind us.
  • Intended stimulus impact will not be timely.
  • To excel in a post recession world, Canada must diversify its international trading partners.
  • Now is the time to (re)think long-term.
