The Canadian Association of New York in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in New York is pleased to invite you to a luncheon presentation with the Honourable Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance of Canada.



Bill Morneau is Canada's Minister of Finance and has been in that role since 2015. He is the Member of Parliament for Toronto Centre, and an accomplished business leader.

As Canada's Minister of Finance, Bill has played a key role in shaping government policy and initiatives, including the introduction of the Canada Child Benefit, tax cuts for the middle class and small businesses, and the negotiation of an enhanced Canada Pension Plan.

Between 1990 and 2015, Bill led the human resources firm, Morneau Shepell, through a period of transformational growth. Under his leadership, the firm grew from 200 employees to 4,000, becoming the largest firm of its kind in Canada.

As a community leader, Bill has worked to support the arts, help at-risk-youth, and improve access to health care and education. Over a period of 20 years, he served as the chair of the board at St. Michael's Hospital, Chair of Covenant House and Chair of the C.D. Howe Institute, and sat on many boards, including at the Loran Scholars Foundation and the Learning Partnership.

Internationally, Bill founded a school for Somali and Sudanese girls in Kakuma Refugee Camp, a UNHCR camp in northern Kenya.

Bill has co-authored a book, The Real Retirement, and previously served as pension investment advisor to the Ontario government. He holds a BA from Western University, an MSc (Econ) from the London School of Economics and an MBA from INSEAD.
