Capital Investment and Technology Adoption Panel Discussion

Investment in new capital and technology is critical for the Canadian industry to grow and be globally competitive. Unfortunately, Canadian companies are falling behind their international competitors when it comes to investing in new machinery, equipment and advanced manufacturing technologies.

Meanwhile, Canada is home to global leaders in technology adoption and our businesses have access to a range of existing supports to help them deal with the rapid pace of technological change taking place today.

Panelists (to view bios click here)

  • Ed Beange, President, Hansen Industries Ltd.
  • Neil Lang, COO, Corvus Energy Inc.
  • David Spicer, Partner at BDO
  • Paula Cruickshank, Senior Vice President, BC & North Region at BDC


  • Beau Olmstead, Vice President, Commercial Banking, RBC Royal Bank

To share information about the opportunities created by embracing new technologies, and to support business investment and growth in Canada, CME will bring together a local manufacturing leader to discuss their company's success in adopting new technology, along with experts from BDO Canada, Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), and RBC who will provide specific insights on how you can invest in and grow your company.
