Challenges and Solutions for the Canadian M&A Market

Part 3 of "M&A Momentum in the Americas" 
Webinar On-Demand
In partnership with Mergermarket

While 2020 may have had a slow start for Canadian transactions, the fourth quarter accelerated dramatically. That faster pace seems to be holding true for 2021 as well, including the Inter Pipeline mega-deal in February. But although deal prospects are positive this is also a time of change for the Canadian landscape, as major macro-economic trends from the pandemic to clean investing start to take effect.

In this on-demand webinar, our panel of experts discusses the opportunities in Canadian transactions and dives into the detailed topics needed to take advantage of those opportunities, including:

  • What will drive Canadian M&A in 2021?
  • How are ESG trends impacting sectors like metals and mining?
  • Will we see the use of SPACs take off in Canada? 
  • How is the growth of PE fundraising changing the market?
