Addressing the Challenge: Deliberations at the TD Forum on Canada's Standard of Living

Research Report by Conference Board of Canada

This article by the Conference Board of Canada outlines the major debates and findings from the 2002 TD Forum on Canada’s Standard of Living. The main objective of the Forum was to find a way of “raising Canada’s standard of living more quickly than it has been rising in the recent past, so that it will surpass that of the United States within 15 years.” Five main themes were discussed at the Forum: leadership and attitudes, human capital, smart social policy, strengthening the national socio-economic framework, and redefining Canada’s external relationships (especially with the United States). Most participants concluded that Canada’s greatest need is leadership and a change of attitudes to “convince Canadians that a much brighter future is possible.”
