LAUNCH | The Washington Forum on the Canadian Economy

Date & Time

Apr. 16, 2024
1:15pm – 2:15pm ET


Online Only


Co-chaired by former Finance Minister of Canada Bill Morneau and former Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve for Supervision Randal Quarles, the Forum will aim to educate US policymakers, business leaders, and the public on the dynamics of the Canadian economy. Programming will range from virtual events on niche, but critical, economic issues to major in-person gatherings with leading figures in the Canadian-US policy space.

The launch featured a “fireside chat” conversation between Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem. The two central bank leaders shared their perspectives on the economic outlook, monetary policymaking in their respective countries, and the enduring value of the Canada-US economic relationship.
