A resilient economic recovery from COVID-19 is one that creates jobs and economic benefits in the near term while also investing in the jobs, infrastructure and growth that will keep Canada competitive in the clean economy of the 21st century. After COVID, our focus should not be simply on returning to growth, but on growing smarter and cleaner to support a stronger Canada.

To assess what government measures are best suited to the task, Smart Prosperity Institute has developed The Resilient Recovery Framework. The Framework is a 25-page manual that assesses investments and policies using three lenses. First, does the measure stimulate timely, lasting economic benefits and jobs? Second, does the measure help the environment and support clean competitiveness? Third, is the measure equitable, implementable and feasible?
