Canada’s capital markets are among the best in the world – an engine of growth and opportunity. As we enter the next stages of post-pandemic recovery and move to address significant global economic challenges, including rising inflation rates, supply chain bottlenecks, and labour shortages, it is critically important to ensure we work to create a favourable environment for public companies to prosper.

Join Canadian Club Toronto on November 16 for an engaging discussion with John McKenzie, CEO of TMX Group. John will sit down with Rita Trichur from the Globe and Mail to discuss the key steps we need to take as an industry to ensure Canada’s public markets remain vibrant and globally competitive, and how public policy can enhance capital market conditions and clear a path to long-term success.


**The livestream for virtual guests will begin at approximately 12:40pm ET & a link will be provided closer to the event date.**
