TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 14, 2013) - On May 3, 2013 AIESEC Canada will be hosting its annual Youth to Business Forum in Calgary, asking university students from across the country a key question about Canada's future: Is Canada on the right track to become a sustainable and competitive global leader? More than 300 university student leaders will be joined by business and community leaders, policy makers and representatives of non-governmental organizations for a day of dialogue, discussions and breakout sessions. AIESEC's Youth to Business Forum is a key part of the organization's five day National Leadership Development Conference.
Mr. Dinning, Chair of Export Development Canada, Chancellor of the University of Calgary and former Provincial Treasurer and Minister of Education for Alberta will be inspiring and challenging students and business leaders as he delivers one of the keynote addresses this year. This year's Youth to Business Forum and National Conference will be hosted in Calgary and will provide a forum for needed dialogue between Canadian industry executives, and Canadian university students. To add to this year's discussions, AIESEC Canada has launched a nation-wide survey with the help of Leger Marketing, asking students their perspective on what they value in an employer and how sustainable do they think Canadian industries really are.
