Truth And Reconciliation Roadmap
We support our members in building relationships that will help their businesses thrive, and building relationships with groups that are often under-represented in business is not only the right thing to do, it’s critical to our national competitiveness and well-being. Informed and respectful engagement between businesses and Indigenous peoples is one aspect of this, which is why we want to congratulate The Winnipeg Chamber on its Truth and Reconciliation Roadmap (TRR). TRR serves as a guide to provide businesses with the focus and resources to achieve engagement and assist the business community in demonstrating the role it must play in reconciliation.

But smart money may be betting on, well, smarter forms of money to come out ahead. If this comes to pass, Canada will need to ensure its approach to CBDCs is streamlined to improve its economic competitiveness, support more precise fiscal policy and, above all, ensure it can navigate an increasingly uncertain global order.
