11:30am-1:30pm | Chateau Laurier - 1 Rideau Street, Ottawa

Cancer is more common than most people realize, over 40 % of Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime. Many Canadians don’t learn they have cancer until it is late-stage, and the vast majority of Canadians are not even aware of specific types of cancer, such as myeloma. Sadly, 1 in 4 Canadians will die from cancer. However, amidst these grim numbers, there is tremendous hope and promise as innovations in cancer drugs and therapies are significantly improving patient-care and re-defining the parameters of life expectancy for Canadians with cancer.

11:30am-1:30am | One King West - 1 King Street West, Toronto

The strong relationship between health and wealth should be a priority for Canadians. Apart from lifestyle choices such as healthier diets and regular exercise, the big challenge for improving the health and financial well-being of Canadians is understanding the inextricable link between health and wealth. The choices people and financial institutions make today will affect everyone tomorrow as the burden for care and wealth will need to be shared by all of us.

11:30am-1:30pm | Chateau Laurier - 1 Rideau Street, Ottawa

In our 150-year history, we have come a long way together. Canada has achieved growth and economic prosperity while fostering increasingly progressive approaches to leadership. Now facing a more complex and globally-connected playing field than ever before, the country faces a new wave of challenges. Disruption touches each sector in the way we work, learn, and lead. It has become clear that Canada’s economic prospects remain only as strong as our organizations and their leaders, and the degree to which they  are willing to embrace disruption and evolve in the ways they do business. In this new reality, leaders from Canada’s economic drivers weigh in on what it takes to challenge the status quo and lead into a thriving future.

In this Economic Club exclusive, our panel of experts will lay out the problems we face as a country and offer creative insights and solutions to fix them.
