A Focus on ICT


In an environment of abundant and divergent policy advice of what should or should not be adopted as part of a robust digital innovation economy, having a clear understanding of the opportunities and unintended consequences will be vital in making timely and informed decisions.
Digital transformation continues to radically change the face of business in Canada and around the world. Spurred by strong business to business and business to consumers appetite, digital disruption is being felt in the banking, media, transportation, manufacturing, health, retail, and many other sectors. This reshaping of traditional markets is also challenging every aspect of incumbent firms in an increasingly global and competitive landscape

The meeting allowed delegates to discuss the Canada European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the importance of increasing trade between Canada and Europe.

As a result, these shifts have left our institutions, regulatory bodies and even international agreements in a race against time as they struggle to keep pace.
