While slow economic growth is a global phenomenon, the PPF’s Growth Summit on October 12, 2016, reinforced the fact that Canada has many options to make its economy more competitive on the global stage. The report says the road map for a strong Canada with a competitive economy includes four key areas:

  • Setting the stage for global competitiveness by encouraging competition through trade agreements.
  • Support the development of small and large businesses by finding creative ways to manage and invest money at all stages.
  • Embracing a long-term vision of infrastructure investments by creating a national fund to attract support for large projects
  • Hiring and retaining a diverse set of workers, with a focus on recruiting immigrants and Indigenous peoples.
