Christy Clark Joins CLC at the Challenge of Change Forum

The annual Challenge of Change Forum will be held from June 12-14 at the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu in Charlevoix Quebec. As part of the agenda, we are pleased to announce that Christy Clark, former Premier of British Columbia, will be joining us as keynote.

Clark is the longest-serving female Premier in Canadian history and the only woman in Canada ever to be re-elected as Premier. She has made an indelible mark on the Canadian political landscape. She led British Columbia through a period of remarkable economic growth, fiscal responsibility, and job creation. Under Ms. Clark’s leadership, British Columbia was Canada’s economic leader for three consecutive years, a feat not accomplished since the 1960s.

BC was first in job creation among the Canadian provinces. Clark pulled her province out of a massive deficit to deliver five consecutive balanced budgets. When she retired from office, British Columbia was triple AAA rated and on track to eliminate its operating debt by 2020, a milestone not achieved since 1976. She championed oil and gas, securing the largest private sector investment in Canadian history, the Shell Canada LNG Plant, which will ship its first gas to Asia in 2024. She is also responsible for turning Site C, a massive hydro project that had been on the books for 50 years, into reality.
