The Empire Club of Canada Presents:
How Can Canada Build Back Better? The OECD’s Advice

As Canadians considered how to build a better economy as the COVID-19 crisis started to recede, their prospects and possibilities were shaped not only by the choices of their own governments and firms but by those of their closest international partners in North America, the Group of Seven and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

No one was better placed to provide perspective on, and help produce, the pathway to Canada’s post-pandemic prosperity in that key international context than Angel Gurria, Secretary General of the OECD. He joined the Empire Club of Canada to present the results of the OECD’s economic outlook for Canada and its key partners and to report on the OECD’s critical work on transitioning to a jobs-rich digital economy. He also reflected on how he has led the OECD for 15 years, including during the global financial crisis from 2008-9, and has broadened its work to produce “better policies for better lives” in financial regulation, health, climate change and much else.
