The rules for success have changed
The attitudes and behaviours that helped companies thrive in the past aren’t what will help them win in the future. Canadian companies need to change if they want to keep up.
Canada needs more companies to achieve lasting success
Fuelled by top talent and cutting-edge technology, the world’s leading companies are pulling away from the pack and reshaping their industries. These large, high-impact firms are pushing the boundaries of productivity globally and driving prosperity at home. Canada needs more like them.
These organizations have persistent problems meeting their interest payments but still manage to survive. They divert capital and talent from more productive firms—making it hard for younger, more dynamic businesses to thrive.
We need Canadian businesses to act with courage and take action now. Cultivating these behaviours will help more of them achieve lasting success—and ensure Canada prospers in the years to come.
