2022 Tansley Lecture: Smart, co-operative action for a better future


Economic growth for Canadians will depend on our ability to set, and reach, productive and equitable goals.


The Honourable Anne McLellan, P.C., O.C., A.O.E., Canadian and International Strategic Planning Advisor, Bennett Jones LLP; Co-chair, Coalition for a Better Future, &

The Honourable Lisa Raitt, P.C., Vice-Chair, Global Investment Banking, CIBC Capital Markets; Co-chair, Coalition for a Better Future

As we exit the pandemic, we need to turn our attention to the challenges of building a more productive economy, tackling climate change, adjusting to demographic shifts, addressing socio-economic inequities and better preparing ourselves for future health crises.

The 131 member organizations of the Coalition for a Better Future are united in our belief that economic growth is a necessary precondition for job creation, rising incomes, a cleaner environment, and a better quality of life. It is time to reimagine what Canada is capable of achieving-to embrace an ambitious vision for inclusive, sustainable economic growth and opportunity for all.

About the Tansley Lecture:

Named in honour of Donald D. Tansley and his remarkable career as a senior civil servant in Canada, The Tansley Lecture is one of the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy's flagship events. Held annually in Regina, Saskatchewan, this event is an opportune time for civil servants and community members-many of whom are JSGS alumni-to network and exchange ideas with students and academics during the cocktail hour and before the dinner reception and guest lecture.

Each year, a guest speaker is selected based on knowledge of, or experience with, using or adapting the machinery of government or the non-profit sector to implement innovative and often contentious policy decisions, achieve an ambitious policy objective, or better serve the public interest. At times, this requires a major restructuring of government and its agencies or a reorientation of the public sector relative to other sectors in society.
