October 8, 2016 – Washington, D.C.– Department of Finance Canada

The Government of Canada is rebuilding its international influence to create shared growth and prosperity at home and abroad. One way it is doing so is by ensuring that Canada continues to be represented by high quality Executive Directors on the boards of international financial institutions.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau today welcomed the election of three new Canadian Executive Directors to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank Group, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD):

  • Nancy Horsman as the new IMF Executive Director for Canada, Ireland, nine Caribbean countries and Belize;
  • Christine Hogan as the new World Bank Group Executive Director for Canada, Ireland, nine Caribbean countries, Belize and Guyana; and
  • Doug Nevison as the new EBRD Executive Director for Canada, Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan.

Quotes

“It’s clear that the world’s attention is focused on ensuring that more people benefit from the growth we create. Canada is ahead of the curve in diagnosing and addressing the problem. We believe that when you have an economy that works for the middle class, you have a country that works for everyone.”

“Having these three highly qualified individuals representing our interests at these important international institutions will strengthen Canada’s influence on the world stage. This will help create growth and prosperity for the middle class and those working hard to join it.”

- Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance
