Panel Organized by: Julie Greene, Privy Council Office | Christina Stachulak, National Research Canada / Julie Greene, Bureau du Conseil privé | Christina Stachulak, Conseil national de recherches du Canada

How is the Government of Canada helping to address complex public policy challenges, and what is the role for outcomes-based approaches in incentivizing partnerships? This panel will touch on horizontal mechanisms to address some of the most pressing problems addressing Canadians - from using data and drug checking technologies to stop death by opioid overdose to bringing clean technologies to market.

Using Challenge Prizes, backed by data and science, linked to entrepreneurship and building new markets for Canadian products that can help solve global problems – are concrete examples of how the Government is converging to tackle today’s “wicked problems”.
