Canada’s Innovation Strategy is presented in two papers. Both focus on what Canada must do to ensure equality of opportunity and economic innovation in the knowledge society.
Achieving Excellence: Investing in People, Knowledge and Opportunity recognizes the need to consider excellence as a strategic national asset. It focuses on how to strengthen our science and research capacity and on how to ensure that this knowledge contributes to building an innovative economy that benefits all Canadians.
Knowledge Matters: Skills and Learning for Canadians recognizes that a country’s greatest resource in the knowledge society is its people. It looks at what can be done to strengthen learning in Canada, to develop people’s talent and to provide opportunity for all to contribute to and benefit from the new economy.
