Victor Dodig addressed graduates of Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management and shared his advice for bringing new leadership to Canada.

“With the opportunity you’ve earned today, it’s your responsibility to become the leading voices on how Canada shapes industry and commerce in the next century — or how we fund and improve on our public education system — or how we keep health care strong to meet the needs of an aging population. Keeping Canada strong means keeping us on the leading edge of commerce in new fields such as AI and innovation — but equally it means keeping Canada inclusive, vibrant, and fair.”
