High emitters will face the greatest impact of a carbon-priced economy. But what about Canada’s small and medium enterprises who represent 99% of Canadian businesses? How will SMEs contend with a national carbon price? With the release of CPA Canada’s new report, Time Value of Carbon, this panel will explore how some businesses are responding to carbon pricing and discuss the challenges and opportunities of transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
Join iPOLITICSLive as we explore the implications on Canadian business with an assembled panel of experts that include: Craig Alexander, chief economist with the Conference Board of Canada, Stephen Salter, author of CPA Canada’s upcoming series on the time value of carbon and Michelle Brownlee, director of policy with the Smart Prosperity Insitute. Award winning iPOLITICS columnist Susan Delacourt will moderate this session.
