The Trump Effect

Date: Tuesday, January 31, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. ET

Canada is a trading nation and its well-being depends on trade. President Donald Trump has expressed the view that the United States has negotiated ‘bad deals’ with Canada and Mexico through NAFTA. Many are wondering how such negotiations could affect the free movement of capital and international financial markets under Trump’s presidency. Is Mr. Trump likely to close the United States-Canada border? What other changes may he suggest making as President? How would these changes impact Canadians? Our panelists have extensive experience dealing with cross-border and multinational matters. They will discuss the complexities of what Trump’s effect might be on our government, industries and consumers. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Trump’s Approach to Leadership
  • Changes to Policies, Regulations and Taxation
  • Risks to Canadian Businesses
  • Impact on Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Cross-Border Trade and Immigration
  • Infrastructure, Transportation and Energy
  • Stock Market and Commodities
