Niagara Economic Summit 2022 - A roadmap for Growth

As the largest regional chamber of commerce in WNY, we bring approximately 4,500 people together each year via an unprecedented number of events, meetings, and workshops. Designed to facilitate networking opportunities, encourage business development, support professional development, and drive business advocacy, there is a BNP event for every member of your organization. 

Niagara Economic Summit 2022 - A roadmap for Growth

Tuesday, November 8, 2022 (8:00 AM - 3:00 PM) (EST)


About this event 

Panel 1: Boom or Bust The economic legacy of the COVID-19 pandemic is continued instability, marked by inflation, labour shortages, and supply chain weaknesses. We have rapidly shifted from trying to stimulate an economy suppressed by restrictions to reining in an economy that is rapidly overheating. This panel will assess our economic future and how we might chart a path back to stability and predictability.

Panel 2: The War for Talent Labour shortages are forecast to continue for the rest of the decade. In 2022, over a million jobs were unfilled in Canada, and every month, Statistics Canada announces a new record-low unemployment rate. We must overcome our workforce issues to remain competitive and assure Niagara’s place in the war for talent.

Panel 3: Housing the Future The recent cooling of the market has done nothing to alleviate the shortage of housing, and the underlying problems that caused runaway house prices remain unaddressed. The housing sector will have to cope with new challenges, such as the necessary transition to net-zero housing, to greater density, and the need for more human-scaled urban planning. Niagara needs a housing strategy that is affordable, sustainable, and delivers for our workforce and our future.
