About the Event


The Public Policy Forum’s annual Testimonial Dinner & Awards and Canada Growth Summit are being rescheduled to Thursday, October 15, 2020. This has not been an easy decision. But while the risk associated with COVID–19 remains relatively low, PPF felt moving these events to the fall is the responsible course.

We have been gratified at the support we have received for rescheduling through our consultations with sponsors, partners, vendors, and speakers. They have told us of the importance they place in these events and reiterated their desire to continue supporting the work PPF does. Current tickets will be honoured. We look forward to seeing you in the fall and engaging with you on other projects – online or in person – in the meantime.

We also want to recognize the courage and professionalism of public health workers, government officials and others in the front lines of keeping Canada informed, protected and calm.

Tickets are still available for purchase
