In a wide-ranging address to Canadian Club Toronto, Mirko Bibic shares insights on reducing place-based disparities in Canada through network technology, investment, and creating opportunities for businesses and communities.

“To ensure more investment that better connects smaller communities, we have to encourage companies to continue to invest. And a good example of how public policy can and should encourage investment is the accelerated investment incentive, which was introduced by the federal government in 2018. It is a policy that plays no favourites… It just allows anyone willing to invest to deduct more of their capital costs in the first year of the investment cycle.”
