On Monday, April 15 Century Initiative hosted a panel discussion featuring diverse perspectives on our vision for Canada’s future and innovative ideas on how we can collectively build a more prosperous Canada over the course of this century.
Here are some quick takeaways via the Century Initiative:
Today at @rotmanschool, Mark Wiseman of @blackrock on the future of Canada: “@CI2100 was created b/c the country needs a long term strategy. It’s about scale. We will lose our place in the world & relatively, Canadians will be worse off — unless we continue to scale” #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/td8UGGUgHL— Max Seunik 孙明熙 (@maxseunik) April 15, 2019
This math won’t work. When my grandparents retired, there were 6 working, tax-paying Canadians to support them. For me, it will be 2. @rotmanschool’s Tiff Macklem: “if you’re a student here today, you should be worried.” @CI2100 pic.twitter.com/fj4qOQRYFj— john stackhouse (@StackhouseJohn) April 15, 2019
Our population has gone from 6 working Canadians per retiree to approx 2 per retiree — we have no choice but to scale thoughtfully or our population will decline and have significant ramifications for our shared prosperity. #100Millionby2100 #BiggerBolderCanada 🇨🇦 pic.twitter.com/U2qotOEti0— Olivia Labonté (@LivLabonte) April 15, 2019
