[EVENT] CanadaNext Symposium

Are Canadians ready for the wave of technological and demographic changes sweeping Canada? Ipsos CanadaNext Symposium, a discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing Canada over the next ten years will take place on September 18, 2017.

Hosted by the Munk School of Global Affairs, the half-day symposium will focus on how technology, the sharing economy, the Internet of things and Canada’s changing demographics are creating a wave of change that is reshaping our communities, our businesses, our jobs and our lives. We surveyed 2,000 Canadians, presented them with 50 future scenarios and asked them how likely they are to occur, how it will affect them and who they trust to manage change.
