Sustainable Prosperity: The Smart Prosperity Initiative

Project Leads: Stewart Elgie, Annette Verschuren, Lorraine Mitchelmore

Founded by respected Canadian leaders from business, think tanks, labour, Indigenous Peoples, youth, and NGO communities, Smart Prosperity harnesses new thinking to map out and accelerate Canada’s transition to a stronger, cleaner economy in the next decade.

Smart Prosperity has been purpose-built over the past few years to drive a major shift to clean growth in Canada by:

  • Demonstrating what a sustainable economy looks like, by setting out a 10 year vision for making Canada a clean growth leader, with specific goals and metrics, and a policy road map to get there.
  • Bringing together a diverse group of Canadian leaders who provide a balanced, evidence-based voice for driving this transition.
  • Changing the narrative to recognize clean growth as a critical economic opportunity – not a threat – and build a psychology of success that Canada can do it.
