“I returned to Canada to start my new job as President & CEO at the University Health Network on January 5, 2015. Returning to work in Canada is a great personal achievement for me; having been born here and having roots in this great country, I always wanted to contribute to the system that raised and took care of me. Also, having worked close to 30 years in the US healthcare system – most of my adult professional life - coming back to Canada is an opportunity for me to reflect on the Canadian healthcare system using a perspective shaped in a significantly different environment."

Nova Scotians know all too well the losses that flooding and other severe weather can inflict.

But neither Nova Scotians nor Canadians as a whole are ready for the increase in severe weather that climate change is bringing. Canada is the only G7 country without a national flood program.

Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) and the property and casualty insurance industry it represents believe Canada needs such a plan.

Don Forgeron, President and CEO of IBC and a native Nova Scotian, will speak on an initiative the industry is advocating for: a made-in-Canada program for managing flood risk. He will also address how flood and the IBC’s proposed plan will affect Atlantic Canada.

Canada is entering a new era when it comes to First Nations. Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde put forward a comprehensive and ambitious agenda for fundamental change, progress and partnership aimed at closing the gap in the quality of life between First Nations people and Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said “no relationship is more important” than the one with Indigenous Peoples, declaring the constitutionally guaranteed rights of Canada’s First Nations “a sacred obligation”. National Chief Bellegarde and First Nations across the country are now ready to embark on a new path with Canada, one based on respect, rights and a new nation-to-nation approach to governing. What does it mean for business and the economy?

AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde, leader of the national organization representing First Nations in Canada, will speak to the goals and objectives of First Nations and how we can all work together to close the gap, and achieve real change and reconciliation. On March 7, join National Chief Bellegarde to learn what Closing the Gap means for Canada’s future.

The historic role of the university is sacrosanct: develop and disseminate knowledge. But as the knowledge economy intensifies its demand for intelligent, innovative university graduates, stakeholders are asking hard questions: is a university education in its current form relevant to the needs of 21st century economy? Does it develop skills employers value, abilities alumni can market, and research and innovation that communities can leverage for broad-based prosperity and the common welfare?

Yes it does, but mostly through a 20th century model that leaves too much opportunity on the table. Canadian universities need to embrace deep positive change to supply the resources — talent and research — Canada needs with speed and scale.
