Be a part of the conversation that delivers long term growth in Canada

Some of the best minds, in the same room. Thought leaders and practitioners you’d be unlikely to hear anywhere else discussing the latest policy challenges and opportunities, and sharing insights on how to boost Canada’s GDP.

PPF’s Canada Growth Summit has fast become a Canadian institution, a can’t-miss event on Canada’s economic policy calendar that brings together 400+ of the top minds in policy, business, investment and government. Last years highlights include Finance Minister Bill Morneau, who spoke to “Going the Distance on Inclusive Growth” and Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England in conversation with PPF President & CEO, Edward Greenspon.

In 2019, the Summit will again focus on some of the big challenges and opportunities confronting the Canadian economy: strategies for big data and IP, the future of work, the economics of cyber attacks, and the diversification of trade.
