Event Description:











Join the Honourable Perrin Beatty, President & CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, to hear the 7 tasks for the new government.


As we head into another economic downturn, Canada has little fiscal wiggle room to help cushion the effects on every day Canadians. Business will be the sole catalyst to drive Canada’s economy forward. Facing such a challenge means it is imperative Canada gets its business environment right. Canada’s businesses understand that competing at home and abroad means addressing issues of increasing concern like taxation, regulation, skills and immigration if Canada, and all Canadians, are to weather the storm.
 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Honourable Perrin Beatty, PC, OC
President and Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Chamber of Commerce

The Honourable Perrin Beatty, PC, OC, is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the 200,000-member Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Canada’s largest and most representative national business association. Before joining the Canadian Chamber in August 2007, Perrin held the same role at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME).

A descendant of one of Canada’s most prominent manufacturing families, he grew up in Fergus, Ontario and graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1971.

Perrin was first elected to the House of Commons as a Progressive Conservative in 1972. During his 21 years in Parliament, he served as Minister in seven different portfolios, including Treasury Board, National Revenue, Solicitor General, Defence, National Health and Welfare, Communications and External Affairs.

In 1994, Perrin joined a number of private sector boards and worked as a consultant in communications. In addition, he was an Honorary Visiting Professor in Western University’s Department of Political Science. From 1995 to 1999, he served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

In keeping with his long-standing interest in education, Perrin served as Chancellor of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology from 2008 to 2015. He has received honorary degrees of Doctor of Laws from Western University, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and Wilfrid Laurier University.

Perrin is currently a member of the board of directors of Mitsui Canada and in 2018, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada “for his lifetime of public service and for his devotion to the development of our nation as a community leader and corporate visionary”.
