As society emerges from the global pandemic, everything is changed. Among the changes that trade, industry, and professional associations are grappling with are the new realities for themselves and their members. As society hurtles through the 21st century, the sectors and professions that built the Canadian economy are encountering a chasm, requiring a leap of faith into the future.
