Consultation Paper

The panel's consultation paper is intended to provide context and background information on federal support for business and commercially-oriented R&D, and puts forward specific consultation questions. It builds on other recent work about Canada's innovation performance undertaken by the Council of Canadian Academies and the Science, Technology and Innovation Council that point to a serious issue facing Canada in terms of our country's lagging ability to capitalize on the knowledge we produce to create economic value.
