Issue

Millions of Canadians live and work abroad. Many of these Canadians are highly skilled and connected to the world’s fastest growing economies.  In an interconnected world, these people are in a unique position to help build our economy. Expatriates are not a loss to our national economy; rather, they are an untapped resource, lost to Canada because we do too little to harness their skills. How can we change this? A dialogue will be host in Toronto next January to  discuss the potential economic benefits of connecting to Canadians abroad, and strategies to do so.
