With the help of a Canadian business think-tank, the federal government is moving forward with a plan to make Canadian organizations more innovative and competitive.

During this summer and fall, a series of 35 regional summits will be held across Canada, eventually culminating in a national summit in Toronto by November, Industry Minister Alan Rock announced, last month.

The objective of the summits is to develop “clear, actionable plans,” that will make Canada more innovative.
