THECIS Breakfast – June 7, 2023
Canadian research facilities are home to some of the most talented people in their fields in the world. Canada has all of the fundamentals required to build a stronger and more innovative economy.
However, Canadian businesses do not invest in R&D to the same degree as their global peers, which weakens Canada’s economic competitiveness and reduces opportunities for Canadian workers.
The Canada Innovation Corporation (CIC) is being created as a Crown Corporation with a mandate to “help Canadian businesses across all sectors and regions become more innovative and productive”. IRAP will be rolled into the CIC, plus receive extra funding.
Peter Josty was in Ottawa recently to moderate a discussion on the CIC. Join us for breakfast on June 7th to find out the latest news from Ottawa.
