Summary: The central theme of the submission by the Canadian Steel Producers Association is the need to recalibrate Canada's R&D support system to focus more effectively on supporting industry-led innovation. It proposes a number of specific changes to existing measures, especially to the SR&ED tax credit system, that will stimulate market-driven innovation and the commercialization of R&D results by Canadian manufacturers. More effective support for industrial innovation can help enable Canadian industry to achieve stronger commercial success, in turn generating wealth and building a more prosperous economy.
