To succeed in a highly competitive global economy, Canada needs an innovation strategy that rewards competition, entrepreneurship, and bringing ideas to life. Innovation occurs not just through the creation of new technologies, but through transformative processes, products and partnerships that will build prosperity now and for the future.

The Council supports an innovation agenda that:

  • Supports Canada’s network of business incubators and accelerators
  • Clarifies foreign investment procedures
  • Encourages the success of innovative firms as they scale-up
