To compete globally, Canada needs to be a leader in the innovation economy
Canada’s biggest asset resides in its human capital. We have the best post-secondary attainment rate amongst G7 countries and an immigration system that has proven to be one of the successful in the world. The foundation of innovation is intellectual capital. This is the best investment we’ll ever make in our economic future. We need to double down on our biggest strength.
