The Empire Club of Canada Presents:
Getting back to normal – What does it mean and what will it take?

With millions of Canadians being vaccinated, and provinces slowly unrolling reopening plans across the country, when does Canada return to normal? What does the new normal look like for everyday Canadians and Canadian companies?

Our panelists discuss the challenges we faced in continuing to protect Canadians from COVID-19 while getting our economy back to pre-pandemic levels.

Our panel discussed the challenges Canada faced with achieving herd immunity, issuing vaccine passports and looking at the challenges Canadian businesses will face getting back to normal.

How will we build back better? When do we get back to normal? What is the new normal?
