Topic: Now What? An Outlook for Small Business and Manufacturing in Canada

(1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST)

We’re honoured to have two influencers in Canadian business joining us for our National Forum this year. With continued economic challenges, where are we going? What will that new normal look like or is this it? Will we see greater support for small business and manufacturing in Canada? What needs to happen and what are these organizations, who CKCA has partnered with, doing to ensure industry in Canada can thrive? This is your chance to hear from experts who really do have their finger on the pulse.

Dan Kelly, President, Canadian Federation of Independent Business
Dennis Darby, President, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters Association
