Economic Development in Canada
Canada’s economic development covers an incredibly diverse and expansive set of policies that are focused on improving the economic wellbeing and quality of life for local communities, provinces, and the country as a whole. This area of public policy offers an opportunity to discuss and examine the ways in which to improve conditions for investment, increase Canada’s innovation, expand global trade, and continue building a fair and competitive economic marketplace for all citizens.
Public Policy in Canada
The Better Canada Institute (BCI) is a start-up think tank that aims to fill the gaps in our public discourse, bridge the divide between the public, academics, and policy makers, and develop creative, evidence-based solutions to the significant problems facing our nation.
BCI is an incubator of ideas, policy, and important conversations. Each month, we will bring together top leaders and professionals from across Canada to engage with some of the most important policy conversations facing our communities and our country. We strive to make public policy in Canada accessible to all levels of interest.
