June Issue of The Canadian Business Journal Now Online

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 3, 2013) - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce the June issue of The Canadian Business Journal is now available online at .

The cover feature for this issue focuses on the need for bridging a noticeable gap between higher education and business enterprise. It was a topic inspired by a recent event hosted by The Canadian Chamber of Commerce, called The Competitive Edge: Success Through Innovation where some of the country's top educators and business leaders discussed their candid views on what actions need to be taken.

Additionally, we have an economic report from The Chamber's Chief Economist Tina Kremmidas on re-evaluating Canada's International Trade: The Impact of Global Supply Chains.

This issue also looks into the Canadian resources sector, including an exclusive interview with Tim McMillan, Saskatchewan Minister Responsible for Energy and Resources. The Conference Board of Canada has called the prairie province's resources 'the envy of North America'. In another feature, Quebec Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Francoise Bertrand makes it abundantly clear the FCCQ is in support of pipeline development and the reasons why. We also hear from an expert panel on the discussion about women in mining, and why there aren't more of them in this established industry. In a somewhat related topic, another panel of experts, Deb Gillis, COO of Catalyst and Bill Downe, president and CEO of BMO Financial Group, analyze why so few women are on corporate boards of directors.

You'll also want to read our regular monthly columns on social media from Melonie Dodaro and our economics expert Alex Carrick. There is all of that and much more in this edition of CBJ.
