Release: Canada 2020 named one of the leading “think tanks to watch” globally for second straight year

26 January 2015 (OTTAWA) – For the second year running, Canada 2020 has been named one of the leading think-tanks to watch globally by the University of Pennsylvania’s Global Go To Think Tank Index. Canada 2020 has also been named one of the Top 30 Think Tanks for the Canada and Mexico region.
The report, released late last week, is the culmination of a year’s worth of research, nominations and voting by over 3,500 members of the global academic and think tank community. The resulting report chronicles and ranks every think tank of note from every region around the world.
“Canada 2020 is once again honoured and humbled to be ranked alongside such impressive company,” said Tim Barber, Canada 2020’s Co-Founder. “Since 2006, we have been hard at work building a progressive community of people and ideas, and awards like this let us know we’re on the right track. 2014 was a banner year for our organization – we produced more original research than ever before, we convened the largest crowds, and we inspired thousands of conversations about Canada’s future and its place in the world. Expect bigger and better things from us in the years ahead.”
