The tech boom

Torys webinar

June 14, 2021 11:00 - 12:00 MT

Western Canada’s transformation was already underway before the pandemic, and the crisis is serving to expedite changes to the region’s economic and commercial profile. A rebalancing of energy mixed with a growing focus on renewables, greener opportunities, and nontraditional sectors to the region are influencing how businesses approach everything from distressed transactions to ESG considerations.

Join our Western Canada series where our Calgary lawyers, along with industry guests and Torys lawyers from other offices, will lead candid discussions on the evolving state of business in Canada’s West.
