COVID-19 will undoubtedly have severe economic consequences, and it will take strong responses from both businesses and governments to minimize the impact.

This panel will discuss the impact that COVID-19 will have on the economy both domestically and internationally, and how businesses and governments can best respond. The panel discussion will feature the Dean of the Rotman School of Management, Tiff Macklem; former CPPIB CEO and former BlackRock executive, Mark Wiseman; and President of the Canadian Labour Congress, Hassan Yussuff. Moderated by Editor, News Features and Special Projects at the Wall Street Journal, Elena Cherney.
