What We Do

Canada 2020 is Canada’s leading, independent, progressive think-tank working to redefine the role of the federal government for a modern Canada.
We do this by hosting events, producing original research, and starting conversations about Canada’s future. Our goal is to build a progressive community of people and ideas that will move and shape governments in the future.

Highlights: Global Progress 2017

From September 15 – 17, 2017, Canada 2020 hosted Global Progress 2017 in Montreal, Canada for the second consecutive year. Canada 2020 partnered with the Centre for American Progress, Policy Network, and Volta Italia to bring over 300 progressives from over 25 countries together for 3 days of discussion.
