Canada : Government welcomes report from industry leaders outlining ambitious goals to increase Canadian global competitiveness.

In a new model of collaboration with the Government of Canada, industry leaders from six sectors with high-growth potential represented by the Economic Strategy Tables have proposed an ambitious roadmap to guide federal efforts in making Canada more globally competitive.

The collective recommendations, contained in a report titled The Innovation and Competitiveness Imperative: Seizing Opportunities for Growth, were made public today. The Tables also released specific proposals for each of the six sectors with high-growth potential: digital industries, advanced manufacturing, agri-food, clean technology, health and biosciences, and resources of the future.

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, received the reports on behalf of the Government of Canada and thanked the Chairs and members of the Tables for their hard work and leadership in this important national effort.

The Economic Strategy Tables, together with ongoing flagship initiatives such as Innovative Solutions Canada, Connect to Innovate and the Innovation Superclusters Initiative, are part of the Governments Innovation and Skills Plan to create well-paying jobs and strengthen the middle class by investing in high-growth sectors where Canada has a globally competitive advantage.
