Why productivity matters

by Robert Asselin – Senior Vice President, Policy, Business Council of Canada


Robert Asselin joins Business Council of Alberta’s Mike Holden and Alicia Planincic on the #AlbertaBETTER podcast to discuss how a mission-driven approach to innovation policy can help boost Canadian productivity. As part of the conversation, Robert discusses the U.S. DARPA and ARPA-E as examples for Canadian policymakers.

“As a result of trying to solve big problems that society has, they open up new markets, lead to new companies and create jobs.”
