John Baird and Christy Clark join ReNew Canada and Global Public Affairs in a conversation on the shape of Canada’s infrastructure stimulus measures. As key decision-makers who made and executed the infrastructure investments following the 2008 recession, John and Christy will discuss:
- What were the lessons from previous economic downturns and the processes used that could help target investment this time?
- What type of projects governments should we invest in to get a quick stimulus but will also drive a lasting legacy?
- How will regional dynamics shape the type of projects funded?
- What are the big ongoing challenges stimulus funding should look to address (e.g., housing, climate change, indigenous reconciliation)?
The webinar will be held on May 14, 2020, between 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. You can register here.
