The Centre for Canada’s Future

We launched the Centre for Canada’s Future in 2016 to contribute to the national discourse on critical issues, with the goal of making Canada an even better place to live, work, and conduct business. The Centre leverages BCG’s premier analytical capabilities, working with leading Canadian organizations committed to moving the nation forward and convening leaders from both the public and private sector to foster collaboration.

Furthermore, BCG in Canada continues to partner with leading organizations and nonprofits to drive impact across a range of critical topics, such as climate change solutions, DE&I strategies, mental health and more.
