Fifty years later, the need for provincial leadership in Canada is stronger than ever. From equipping citizens with the skills needed in a society increasingly driven by advanced technologies, to building liveable cities, to providing health care, child care and care for the elderly in a sustainable manner, to transitioning to a post-carbon economy, to building a new relationship with Indigenous peoples, to responding to shifting global patterns of migration, the issues that are shaping Canada’s future are ones that necessitate a visionary response from provincial governments.
On December 11-13, 2017 in Toronto, the Mowat Centre will mark the 50th anniversary of Confederation of Tomorrow with a policy conference to assess how provinces can initiate innovative policy responses to the issues shaping Canada’s future. The event will refresh the discussion of Canadian federalism by focusing on emerging national and global challenges and the advantages that provincial leadership offers in addressing them.
