TORONTO, ON, April 26, 2022 – The Public Policy Forum (PPF) is bringing together Canada’s top government and business leaders on April 28, in Toronto, for its sixth annual Canada Growth Summit.
The theme of this year’s Summit is “Transitions to Opportunity” and for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, it will be an in-person, full day event. The Summit will feature discussions around the most pressing policy issues, including how to achieve a path to a net-zero economy, sustainable and inclusive growth, innovation and trade, the state of our airports in a post-pandemic world, and how to champion Canadian innovation in the 21st century.
