2017 CEO Outlook Survey | KPMG | CA

Canadian CEOs are preparing for the future by setting strategic priorities, addressing emerging business risks and laying the groundwork for future growth

KPMG conducted a survey of nearly 1,300 CEOs from around the world to uncover their growth outlooks, strategic priorities, business concerns and investment objectives for the next three years. In this year's report, we compare the responses of 51 Canadian CEOs to those of their global peers to assess how well our nation's senior executives are preparing for the future.


In pursuit of growth

The drivers of change are clear. Economic turbulence, geopolitical instability and massive business disruption are moving at a pace faster than ever before. The 2017 CEO Outlook report highlights that Canadian CEOs recognize the importance of disruption and view it as an opportunity, not a threat, for their business. Rather than waiting to be disrupted by competitors, Canadian CEOs say they are taking active steps to disrupt within their own sectors.

In Disrupt and grow: 2017 Canadian CEO Outlook, KPMG professionals and advisors delve into this year’s survey results to understand how well Canadian CEOs are preparing for the future. In addition to exploring the ways in which Canada’s CEOs are setting strategic priorities, responding to prevailing business concerns and addressing today’s geopolitical realities, this report highlights how Canadian executives can keep pace in an age of disruption.
