Next budget will map out innovation agenda, government taking more ‘inclusive’ approach than before: Bains

'We’re not saying innovation is simply about the latest gadget or technology. So that includes, for example, dealing with climate change, an aging population, housing, and poverty.'

In a sit-down interview with The Hill Times in Centre Block, Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains said that after 30 government roundtables on a new innovation agenda, 'a lot' of portfolio policies, programs, and legislative changes related to innovation will be 'reflected in the upcoming budget.'The Hill Times Photo by Jake Wright
