Document Highlights

The Canadian economy ranks among the best in the world; however, we are stalling or losing ground in areas critical to our ability to compete in a rapidly changing global economy. Declining or comparatively slower growth in per capita income, productivity, exports of value-added goods and services, and innovation are indicators of our diminishing capacity to achieve sustainable prosperity in the increasingly integrated global economy. This volume of Mission Possible: Sustainable Prosperity for Canada focuses on the investments, strategies and priorities that will improve our productivity and our competitiveness. It takes a comprehensive look at the dominant forces reshaping the global economy; assesses Canada’s performance and potential in adapting to these forces; and outlines five strategies for positioning Canada to remain among the top nations. It offers a blueprint for building a new era of economic prosperity through policies and practices rooted in long-term sustainability and success.

A hard copy box set of the four volumes in the Mission Possible series can be purchased for $85.00 plus S&H and taxes, please call 1-866-711-2262.
