Report: Can Canadian Innovation Produce Global Benefits?
Canada spends billions of dollars annually to support its innovation ecosystems, support the growth and competitiveness of Canadian firms, and contribute to employment, prosperity and well-being for Canadians.
But should Canada’s inclusive innovation agenda take a more global approach?
Our latest report on Innovation for Global Benefit, released in partnership with the Munk School of Global Affairs’ Innovation Policy Lab, argues that if Canada wants to be a force for positive change in the world, it needs to consider how its innovation policies and activities affect developing countries, and whether it has a responsibility to do things differently.
Canada has an opportunity to be a global leader in using innovation policy to achieve better health, wealth and well-being around the world – the question is whether Canada’s government has the political will to be that force for positive change.
