Institute for Competitiveness and Prosperity releases Report on Canada 2011, Canada’s innovation imperative

The Institute for Competitiveness and Prosperity released its 2011 Report on Canada earlier this month with a stern warning that “Canada faces an innovation imperative. Our lackluster innovation record stands in the way of all Canadians realizing their full prosperity potential.”

The Institute urges Canadians to raise “our productivity … our innovation capabilities and performance.”  

“What’s really troubling,” observed Roger Martin, Chairman of the Institute, “is that the prosperity gap has more than tripled since 1981 … That has to be a call to action for all Canadians.”
