Public dialogue in Winnipeg explores new ideas for Canada's economic future

VANCOUVER, Nov. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - On Friday, Nov. 4, some of Canada's most impressive young leaders, the Action Canada Fellows, will host a public dialogue in Winnipeg, MB on ideas for advancing Canada's economic future.

The dialogue will be focused on three issues: how inequality and poverty are jeopardizing our human capital, how to develop a creative workforce for tomorrow, and financing Canada's low-carbon energy future.

The Fellows will host the public dialogue on Friday, Nov. 4, 7:30 am - 12:30 pm in Convocation Hall at the University of Winnipeg. This event is free. Registration is recommended. Please RSVP to

The dialogue will feature presentations from leaders in government, business and academia. They include John Curtis, Founding Chief Economist, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; Professor, Queen's University; Tom Rand '07, Lead Advisor, Cleantech - MaRS Discovery District; Founder & Director, Vci Green Funds Inc.; and Alan Freeman, Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Manitoba.

Action Canada is a national fellowship program for promising young Canadians. The program enhances Fellows' leadership skills, broadens their understanding of Canada and its policy choices, and builds an exceptional network of leaders for our future.

Hailing from communities across Canada, the 16 Action Canada Fellows are visiting Winnipeg to learn more about Manitoba's identity, economy and current cultural and political perspectives.

The Fellows are visiting Winnipeg from Nov. 3-6, 2011. For more information on the public dialogue, the Action Canada program and the Fellows' biographies, visit
