On this day in Canadian history, (August 26, 1978), the first Canada Jam Festival opened with the Doobie Brothers, the Commodores, Kansas, Dave Mason, and the Atlanta Rhythm Section. Canada Jam was a rock music festival concert held at Mosport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario on August 26, 1978. The concert attracted over 110,000 fans, making it the largest paying rock event in Canadian history at that time. Four television specials were made from the event and it was broadcast across the CTV television network in Canada.
Canada Jam was the second of three major music festivals held at Mosport between 1970 and 1980; the other two were the Woodstock-esque Strawberry Fields Festival held August 7–9, 1970 and the punk and new wave themed, Heatwave Festival held August 23, 1980. Both these festivals were produced by Toronto promoter John Brower who facilitated the introduction to Mosport Park for Feldman and Stogel.

An aging population and technological change are transforming the Canadian business landscape. As Canada’s baby boomers are heading to retirement, the growth of Canada’s working age population will remain below 0.2% next year and the decade to come.
A recent BDC study found out that around 40% of Canadian small and medium-sized businesses are struggling to find the people they need to grow. This will eventually impact the economy. Business owners need to get creative to find the talent they need to continue to remain competitive.
