Overview

Working Collaboratively to Change the Future of the Economy

The Centre on the Low-Carbon Growth Economy aims to bring together and build consensus between diverse groups of people to develop a transition road map for the Canadian economy. These groups include different levels of government, First Nations communities, private sector, environmental groups, and engaged citizens. The process will promote innovation and technology development, while supporting the continued growth of an environmentally sustainable economy that benefits all Canadians.

A Value-Based Dialogue That Builds Trust

Historically in energy policy discussions, some participants have felt comfortable with participating, while others have felt excluded. The process will overcome these challenges by facilitating transparent dialogues between stakeholders and building shared solutions and policy recommendations.

One of the Most Credible Multidisciplinary Voices in Canada

Since its inception, The Conference Board of Canada has adopted an objective, evidence-based approach to its work. Employing experts in the fields of economic analysis and forecasting, industrial, regional, and organizational strategies, and public policy, the Conference Board is well-positioned to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders whose interests may not initially appear aligned.
