Document Highlights

Canada is a good place to do business. Nevertheless, Canadian business leaders responding to the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Executive Opinion Survey 2011 note a number of challenges to competitiveness. This briefing assesses the impact that the threat of terrorism and the incidence of crime and violence have on the cost of doing business in Canada. Canada’s performance is compared with that of other members of the G8 as well as Sweden, Switzerland, and China. The briefing raises questions about what can or should be done to overcome these challenges, and notes how The Conference Board of Canada is attempting to address these issues through several of its executive networks.
