The Business Council works closely with a number of organizations that share our commitment to shaping public policy in the interests of a stronger Canada and a better world.

Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange

Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange

An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange (CCTX), will help Canadian businesses and consumers guard against cyber-attacks. Launching in 2016, the CCTX will share information about cyber threats and vulnerabilities among businesses, government and research institutions. It will provide its members and the general public with analysis of cybersecurity issues and act as a point of contact for cyber information-sharing organizations in other countries.

Business/Higher Education Roundtable

Business/Higher Education Roundtable

Launched in 2015 by the Business Council, the Business/Higher Education Roundtable represents some of Canada’s largest companies and leading post-secondary institutions. Although partnerships between higher education and industry have existed in other countries – including the U.K., U.S. and Australia – for decades, Canada has lacked a coordinated strategy to strengthen cooperation between employers and educators. Composed of leaders from the private sector, universities, colleges and polytechnics, the Roundtable works to help young Canadians transition from education to the workplace, strengthen research collaboration between industry and institutions, and help Canadian employers as they adapt to the economy of the future.
