Chris Ragan

Chair, Canada's Ecofiscal Commission

As the Chair and thought-leader behind Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission, Chris recruited twelve prominent policy-minded economists from across the country and a heavy hitting advisory board representing industry, the environment and a full spectrum of political thought in Canada, and then tirelessly took that show on the road. Under his leadership, the Commission has helped depolarize the national narrative about our economy and environment, its reports and events have catalyzed new public conversations and behind-the-scenes policy discussions, all supporting thoughtful carbon pricing policy advancement. By advancing policy positions in this fashion, The EcoFiscal commission has done much to decouple Canadian’s fear from the conversation, and allow meaningful strides towards a lower carbon economy.
