The Future of Canada’s Capital Markets

Roundtable Discussion:
The Future of Canada’s Capital Markets:
Where do we go from here?

DATE             May 25, 2021, 11:00amET-12:30pmET

DESCRIPTION

The Canadian economy is poised for significant growth this year as the country slowly emerges from the pandemic. Yet, as the recent report by the Capital Markets Modernization Taskforce clearly identified, capital formation in Canada faces ongoing hurdles that may be dampening growth and competitiveness. Meanwhile, the organization charged with establishing a national securities regulator has been shut down, which perpetuates fragmentation in Canada’s capital markets.

The confluence of these factors leads to a pressing question we will be discussing – what can be done to sustain and enhance Canada’s capital markets and make Canada more hospitable to investment?

Join our discussion, moderated by Barry Campbell (Campbell Strategies), to hear guest speakers Walied Soliman (Chair, Capital Markets Modernization Taskforce), Diane Kazarian (PwC Canada), Kathy Butler (CIBC Capital Markets), Stéphane Rousseau (Université de Montreal), and Mark Carney (Brookfield Asset Management) offer their perspectives on how to bolster Canada’s capital markets in the face of challenges and opportunities ahead.
