Great Ideas from Canadian Leaders – Economy
The world economy is changing and shifting. For individuals – and Canada -- to succeed in tomorrow’s demanding marketplace, flexibility, resilience, creativity and advanced digital literacy will be required. This is the challenge for today’s educators.

In this second installment of Great Ideas from Canadian Leaders, two renowned economists – Warren Jestin, chief economist for the Bank of Nova Scotia and Kevin Lynch, vice-chair of BMO Financial Group – discuss how the world is changing and why its time to reinvent our educational system.
