WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT AND CEO
Welcome to the Australia-Canada Economic Leadership Forum Website!
The Australia-Canada Economic Leadership Forum (AusCan Forum) is the premier leadership dialogue between Australia and Canada. It was formed in 2010, and since that time, every 18 months, brings together, by invitation only, about 150 leaders from government, and the public and private sectors for high level discussions – with Prime Ministers, Ministers and Deputy Ministers, and CEOs of major private sector firms and institutions from both countries – to exchange views on the important issues and priorities of the day which affect our two countries.
The AusCan Forum has enjoyed growing success with each Forum, as is witnessed by the growth in numbers of those wishing to attend and the strong growth in sponsors who help make each Forum happen. The two-way investment between the two nations is over AUD$125B according to Australian government statistics.
The 2023 Forum will take place in Toronto, Ontario. For further information regarding our previous Forums, please click on the tab above. We hope you find our website interesting and informative.
