The Economic Club Presents: "Reasserting Canada's Competitiveness in the Digital Economy"

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 7, 2014) - Canada has been an early leader in Internet adoption and access. But, this advantage is slipping. Other industrialized economies are leaving Canada behind as businesses under-utilize digital technologies and miss out on the contributions they can make to employment, GDP growth, and economic competitiveness. A panel of representatives from leading Internet companies will discuss the importance of the digital economy to Canada's future growth and what Canada can do to maximize the benefits for businesses of all sizes and types.

John Cousens, Vice President, Public Sector Canada, Salesforce.com
