Michel Kelly-Gagnon

President and CEO

After having been head of the Montreal Economic Institute from 1999 to 2006, Michel Kelly-Gagnon was president of the Quebec Employers Council from March 2006 to December 2008. Early in his career he practiced law and then went into business as an associate in a company specializing in employee training. From 2006 to 2009, Mr. Kelly-Gagnon served on the boards of directors of Quebec Workers Compensation Board (CSST). He was one of six people from Quebec honoured in Canada’s Top 40 Under 40™ 2008 awards. The winners were chosen from among 1,100 nominees by an independent selection committee. Mr. Kelly-Gagnon serves on several boards of directors, including until recently that of the Canada Foundation for Innovation, which disburses several hundred million dollars a year in order to finance Canada's research infrastructure. He is back at the helm of the MEI since January 2009 (Biography, full version).

Viewpoint examining how Canada’s lighter regulatory touch cuts compliance costs and makes it easier for firms to list
Canada has avoided the great die-off of public companies afflicting American business especially since the 2002 Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which imposed new, more restrictive accounting and financial transparency rules. But with trends reversing somewhat since 2012, much work remains to be done in Canada to promote access to investment opportunities for the middle class. This would not only further democratize wealth-building for regular Canadians, but also give start-ups even greater ability to raise funds to grow their business.

Viewpoint explaining the impact of interprovincial protectionism and how a Supreme Court liquor law challenge could bring it to and end
The Canadian federation was founded in 1867 in part to ensure a common, unified market across the country. This ideal is enshrined in Section 121 of the Constitution. Yet while substantial trade does take place between the provinces, the dream of a truly unified market remains elusive. An important case about to be heard by the Supreme Court of Canada, though, may help bring down the barriers the provinces have erected to restrict trade over the years.
