The Ontario Economic Summit (OES) supports economic growth in the province. Presented by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, the OES convenes leaders from the private and public sectors in a collaborative forum to define the solutions to Ontario’s greatest economic challenges.

Every year, Ontario’s most influential leaders gather at OES in Niagara-on-the-Lake for an unparalleled opportunity to share insights, explore partnership opportunities, and shape public policy.

The OES is a year-long initiative. Through the Economic Leadership Series, the OES engages leaders at the community-and sector-levels where they join together to define collective, action-oriented economic agendas.

The Ontario Economic Summit is:

  • A year-round, powerful movement that engages thought leaders in communities across Ontario to lead and shape our economic agenda and develop actionable commitments to be implemented.
  • A one-of-a-kind opportunity for leaders from a diverse range of sectors and organizations to share business insights, explore partnership opportunities and influence public policy.
  • A collaborative movement that helps to shape public policy and realize our shared economic vision, Emerging Stronger.
  • A forum where ideas and recommendations to boost prosperity are shared by respected leaders from business, labour, academia, government, non-profit and aboriginal communities.
  • A meeting place for economic champions and the next generation of business and civic leaders.
