David Vigneault, Director of CSIS to Address the EC

11:30am-1:30pm | Marriott Eaton Centre Hotel - 525 Bay Street, Toronto

In today’s complex, interconnected world, threats to national security are many, multi-faceted and continually evolving, and quite often originate in places far removed from our borders.

When CSIS was created over three decades ago, the Cold War was still raging. Conflict between states represented the major threat to international security. Flash forward to today and we have a multitude of security challenges that were never envisioned.

Join the Economic Club of Canada for a special address by David Vigneault, Director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, who will discuss the evolving threat environment and what it means for Canadians.
