Policy and a Pint - How will Alberta fare post-COVID?

When the pandemic hit in March of 2020, governments and policy makers were forced to make drastic decisions and enact emergency measures designed to keep our populations safe and our healthcare system functioning. From "two weeks to flatten the curve" to 18 months later, those decisions have had massive impacts on business, healthcare and on governments themselves.

Three months after Alberta declared that we were "Open For Summer" and 18 months after the pandemic started, how are we doing? What are the actual impacts to sectors like service and hospitality, and what might the downstream economic and political impacts be to Alberta broadly?

Join The School of Public Policy for this online event as we engage experts in business and policy to look at the economic hangover that COVID policy has produced thus far.
