Exploring the Canadian results of PwC’s 24th Annual Global CEO Survey.

Over a year into the global pandemic and we’re still in a period of intense uncertainty. The details of Canada’s COVID-19 recovery may not be clear, but it is clear that we can’t go back to the way things were.

The pandemic has been a catalyst for transformation. Leaders have unleashed their creativity as they seek lasting solutions that showcase resilience.

PwC’s Annual CEO Survey—Canadian insights reveal that Canadian CEOs are extremely optimistic about the future. They expect global economic growth to improve over the next year and are confident in their revenue prospects.

As vaccines roll out and markets begin to re-open, it might seem an economic bounce-back was inevitable. But optimism doesn’t equal opportunity.

Canadian leaders will need to use the energy of a rebounding economy to set priorities that will grow beyond the bounce.

Join us as we explore Canadian CEOs’ perspectives on these key priorities:

  • Leadership in a time of crisis
  • Digital transformation imperatives and cybersecurity threats
  • Sustainability and climate change
  • Building your workforce of the future

Presented by The Conference Board of Canada in collaboration with PwC Canada.
