What We Advocate For

Canadian governments at all levels have put a strong emphasis on investing in innovation and technology, particularly since 2004. This support has significantly contributed to the Canada’s internationally strong position in research, science and technology. However, high quality research doesn’t translate into commercialized business innovation that meets market needs. Canada does hold the position it should compared to other G20 nations in this area and the current state of growth is not sustainable.

We commission and conduct primary research on Canadian innovation with the goal of providing governments and the agencies that support them with the information and data that they need to craft and implement more effective public policy.

Our latest research is a joint effort with Dr. Linying Dong, Associate Professor of Ted Rogers School of Information Technology Management, Dr. Andrea Rowe, post doctoral research fellow, and Mitacs, a not-for-profit national organization that funds innovation research in Canada. 

We are close to issuing our independent final reports on this research. Stayed tuned for more news on this!
