Event description
Canada's Accelerated Landscape

About this Event

Beyond just a surge of innovation, the tech sector in Canada is accelerating in growth and stature. Some of Canada’s fastest growing and largest companies are technology companies. Many of our legacy companies are adapting to digitization, and the need for this transition is even more urgent since the pandemic. The government is perhaps experiencing the greatest evolution of all. But what responsibility does the government hold in this growth? Does participation in this process boost or stifle innovation? How do governments balance a fostering of growth of digital companies with the transformation of our traditional ones? Answering these questions might help us better understand what economic recovery in Canada might look like.

Legendary Canadian journalist Tom Clark will moderate our panel of speakers

Tom Clark joined Global after almost 45 years at the most senior levels of Canadian journalism. He left Global News on January 1, 2017, after serving as the network’s chief political correspondent and host of The West Block. He has interviewed every Canadian Prime Minister since Lester B. Pearson and has covered every federal election campaign since 1974. He has reported in eight active war zones and from over 33 countries. Tom was CTV’s China Bureau Chief and was also its Chief Washington Correspondent for five years. He has a deep understanding of Canada’s position in an increasingly complicated international dynamic.
