The Honourable Brad Duguid speaks to the Empire Club of Canada – Opportunities and challenges facing Ontario’s economy today and into the future
Brad Duguid is the Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.
Ontario has long been the economic driver of the country, but shifts in the traditional landscape of manufacturing, the fluctuating dollar, the growing presence of industrializing nations, and a changing demographic have all left their mark on our economy. After faring well in the global economic downturn, the Ontario government is focusing on policy levers that further drive innovation and productivity, merge new sectors with well-established ones, and lay the foundation for long-term economic success.

Minister Brad Duguid will seek to provide insights on how the government and the private sector can work together to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
