Don Drummond, an individual well known in Canadian financial circles, has joined the Advisory Council of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute. Mr. Drummond is the recently retired Senior Vice President and Chief Economist with the TD Bank. Prior to joining TD in 2000, the native of Vancouver had a long and distinguished career in the federal public service. Notably, he served as the Associate Deputy Minister of Finance responsible for budget planning during the period when Canada moved from chronic deficits to a surplus fiscal position. Currently, Mr. Drummond is the Matthews Fellow in Global Policy and Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the School of Policy Studies at Queen’s University.
The Macdonald-Laurier Institute is delighted to welcome Mr. Drummond aboard and we look forward to his sage advice as we grow the Institute.
