Date: 09 November 2016
Location: C.D. Howe Institute, 67 Yonge Street, Suite 300
Canada ranks #13 globally on the World Economic Forum’s competitiveness rankings and #24 for innovation. With global competition growing at unprecedented speed, it is imperative that Canadian policymakers thoughtfully assess our current policy mix for fostering innovation. So, is Canada falling behind in the global war for technology talent? If yes, what can be done to foster talent in our borders?
On Nov 9th, join the C.D. Howe Institute for its annual Rising Leader Series featuring Terry Stuart, CIO, Deloitte, John Ruffolo, CEO, OMERS Ventures, and Ian Collyer, Partner, Boyden as they unpack these pressing questions.

About C.D. Howe Institute
The Institute began life in 1958 when a group of prominent business and labour leaders organized the Private Planning Association of Canada to research and promote educational activities on issues related to public economic and social policy. In 1973, the PPAC’s assets and activities became part of the C.D. Howe Memorial Foundation, created in 1961 to memorialize the late Right Honourable Clarence Decatur Howe. The new organization operated as the C.D. Howe Research Institute until 1982, when the Memorial Foundation chose to focus directly on memorializing C.D. Howe; the Institute then adopted its current name: the C.D. Howe Institute.
The C.D. Howe Institute commands the attention and respect of Canada’s top opinion leaders and policymakers. The quality and pertinence of the Institute’s research, and its capacity to pull together decision makers for off-the-record discussions, is unequalled.
