Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty had some advice Tuesday for students. Graduates should be asking “What kind of business can I start?”, “What kind of innovation can I bring?” instead of “Who is going to hire me?”
The Ontario Economic Summit at White Oaks in Niagara-on-the-Lake hosted a conference at which broadcaster Don Newman of CBC and Dalton McGuinty discussed the economic future of Ontario and Canada.
“I love this notion of entrepreneurialism,” McGuinty said adding that if Canada expects economic stability Canadians are going to have to nurture our young people and foster a creative environment.
On job security, McGuinty said, while he cannot promise anyone a job for life, he will strive to “create an economy that’s always creating more jobs.”
He said Canadians must encourage entrepreneurialism, and that starts at the elementary level in school systems and homes where parents should be building character traits to boost entrepreneurialism.”
