Since the inauguration of President Donald Trump on January 20th there has been a significant shift in the social, political, and economic policy spaces around the world. The new economic and social policies under President Trump will have a huge impact on everyone, especially Canada.

President Trump’s election has also lead to the rise of far-right groups, such as anti-immigrant, xenophobic, homophobic and neo-Nazi sympathizers who are isolating different minorities. Universities in Canada, including York, have seen an uptick in international student applications. The Trump administration is also going to change the economics between Canada and the U.S. dramatically with potential changes to the corporate tax rate, fossil fuel subsidies and a general policy of “America First”. What should Canada’s policy reaction be?

To further discuss what economic, social and foreign policies Canada should be put in place in response to the Trump administration, we are inviting a panel of experts to discuss this important issue with tomorrow’s future leaders.
