March 13, 2018
Donning the Queen’s jacket he wore during his student days, Governor of the Bank of Canada Stephen Poloz (Artsci’78), delivered the Chancellor David Dodge Lecture in Public Finance on Tuesday, March 13 at the BMO Atrium at Smith School of Business.
Back at his alma mater, Dr. Poloz spoke on “Today’s Labour Market and the Future of Work,” fielded a number of questions and took part in a series of events where he met with students, faculty, and administration.
Dr. Poloz earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Queen’s. He is the third Queen’s graduate to hold the central bank’s top job. Chancellor Emeritus Dodge (Arts’65, LLD’02) served as governor from 2001 to 2008, and Gerald Bouey (Arts’48, LLD’81) headed the bank from 1973 to 1987.
