Imagining a federal community that works

The pandemic highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of Canada’s federation. Bringing together senior civil servants, elected officials and private sector representatives, this roundtable will consider how we can better co-ordinate and collaborate across levels of government to build a more resilient and responsive federation. What do our current institutions do well? How can they improve? How can we better leverage the expertise and resources of all levels of government to ensure an effective response to future crises? Responses to these questions are an essential step in making sure that Canada is ready for the challenges ahead.

NB: This roundtable is open only to participants registered for the entirety of the conference. For details, visit the main conference page. Confirmed speakers are shown. Roundtable composition is not yet final.
