What’s Next for Canada? | 2:00 pm EST | Zoom Webinar REGISTER HERE
Joe Biden becomes President as North America begins to come out of the pandemic to an economy that will look very different than the one we knew just a year ago. The new administration has clear priorities on the environment and energy, supply chains, trade, procurement and immigration – matters that will have significant impacts on Canadian businesses. More broadly, the Biden administration faces huge challenges at home and abroad even as it has very little political space to make the big changes happen. How it manages these challenges has consequences for the Canadian economy.
Start the new year off right by joining Janice Gross Stein, Canadian political scientist, international relations expert, and founding Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, for a timely update on the priorities of a new administration. This salient discussion will help you understand what a Biden presidency means for your business going forward so you can best position your organization to thrive in a new political climate.
Whether it’s economics, geopolitics, or international security and terrorism, few people have a better understanding of global issues than Professor Janice Gross Stein. Her dynamic presentations provide a unique perspective into what’s really happening around the world—from China to Russia to the Middle East and Europe—and what it means to her audiences. Professor Stein’s presentations not only connect the dots regarding key events, but provide a look at where things are headed, and where the potential dangers and opportunities may lie. Both realistic and hopeful, she leaves her audiences with a better understanding of current global issues, and a clear, compelling vision of the future.
