Distinguished Lecture in Economics: Paul Beaudry, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada

The Department of Economics is very proud to present the 2022 Faculty of Arts Distinguished Lecture in Economics with Paul Beaudry, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada, on Pandemic macroeconomics: What we’ve learned, and what may lie ahead.

Recently featured in the UWaterloo daily bulletin was a very interesting article about the Black experience at Waterloo from the 1960s to the 1990s. Some of the early hires of Black professors are highlighted, including Dr. Karl Bennett in Economics, now a Professor Emeritus. These faculty members "had lasting impacts on the community and the world."

Economics Career Panel

Our Economics Society presents: Economics Alumni Panel

Curious about career opportunities your economics degree will give you after graduation? UWES is bringing you three brilliant alumni who have used their Economics degree from the University of Waterloo in unique and non-traditional ways, and have advanced in competitive and top-performing industries. 

The Faculty of Arts at the University of Waterloo is seeking to fill a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) and tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with an anticipated (flexible) start date of January 2022. The applicant will be an exceptional Indigenous scholar who has a demonstrated commitment to engaging both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and community members in teaching and research activities and whose work will contribute to one or more of our academic units.

With the pandemic going on, there is lots of talk about CERB, the benefit that was created as an emergency response. Professor Stephanie Lluis wrote a memo for the C.D. Howe Institute titled, "Lessons from Employment Insurance for the CERB" where she discusses how employment insurance can provide guidance for the CERB.
