We convene opinion leaders and experts from across Canada around our table to share their knowledge and diverse perspectives. We stimulate debate and integrate polarities. We create a context for possibilities to emerge.


We generate ideas and provide realistic solutions to advise governments, Parliament and Canadians. We proceed with resolve and optimism to bring Canada’s economy and environment closer together.


climate issue - imageClimate change has emerged as the most demanding environmental and economic challenge facing our planet. Canada’s response to climate change will have profound economic implications on our nation’s future. The task is immense – we have a growing population and a growing economy with a large natural resources and energy exporting sector. However, climate change also offers opportunities for Canada to become a world leader in technology and innovation. Our prosperity will be determined in large part by how we respond to the significant challenges posed by climate change. From mitigation to adaptation, climate change poses both risks and opportunities that need to be understood from a Canadian perspective.

Climate Prosperity

Climate change and Canada’s response to it have profound economic implications for our nation’s future. There are risks but there are also opportunities. We need to position ourselves to compete and prosper in an increasingly carbon-constrained global economy. Ensuring Canada is well-prepared to adapt and prosper as part of this new reality is the focus of a comprehensive policy research initiative by the National Round Table, called Climate Prosperity.
