#ELXN44: What Is Old is New Again – The “New” Trudeau Government’s Impact on your Business


Québec City


October 5, 2021

Time of event


Join McCarthy Tétrault’s political and legal panel as they discuss what a renewed Trudeau minority government means for your business and the Canadian economy. What does the status quo’s survival mean as we near two years of living with COVID-19?

The panel will assess the federal election results, consider an anticipated Cabinet shuffle, and share strategic insights from their unique experience as former senior politicians and seasoned legal professionals. The discussion will also address the ongoing and unprecedented macro-economic challenges facing Canada and the world, including the climate crisis, increasingly tense international relations and pandemic healthcare. Our experts will explain how the new Trudeau government will respond and what businesses can do to stay ahead of evolving government policy.
