- Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Ontario Director Trish Hennesy,
- Unifor Economist Jim Stanford,
- Metro Vancouver Alliance organizer Deborah Littman,
- GE Canada President and CEO Elyse Allan,

The Summit kicks off at 7pm ET on Friday, October 3 with a debate on good jobs, from a range of perspectives. It will set the tone for a weekend of discussion and new ideas. Check out the entire schedule here.
