BIV on Roundhouse November 14: Tax concerns and competitiveness

On the latest show: the newest CPA Canada Business Monitor shows that Canadian business executives are wary of tax changes and trade issues south of the border. Co-host Hayley Woodin speaks with the association’s chief economist Francis Fong about the monitor’s findings, and what economic factors executives should be looking to in the year ahead.

Erica Pretorius, national leader of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 program, looks at how B.C. companies fared this year. She also shares with co-hosts Kirk LaPointe and Hayley Woodin how the list's makeup has changed over its 20-year history. 

The first-annual Giving Report from CanadaHelps breaks down the economics of Canada's charity sector. President and CEO Marina Glogovac, former CEO of Lavalife and CMO of Kobo, discusses how Canadians are giving, and how charities themselves are evolving. 

Steve Dooley, executive director of SFU’s Surrey campus and co-chair of the Surrey Social Innovation Summit, looks at how best to balance and blend business values with social impact objectives.
