Canada’s Innovation Performance: Finding Rays of Light

Canada’s innovation performance has been weak for decades, earning “C” and “D” grades year-after-year on The Conference Board of Canada’s How Canada Performs Report Card on Innovation. But at the provincial level, a very different story emerges. While some provinces lag international peers on innovation, others are performing at or near the global frontier of innovation excellence.

Which provinces are ranked among the best innovation regions in the world, and which are struggling to keep up? Does Canada receive another “C” or “D” for innovation overall? Has performance improved or continued to slip in Canada? What can Canada and the provinces do to become top-performers on innovation?

In this recorded webinar Paul Preston presents the findings of The Conference Board of Canada’s How Canada Performs Report Card on Innovation. For the second time, the Conference Board’s How Canada Performs analysis compares the innovation performance of individual provinces with that of 16 advanced peer countries. Learn how the provinces and peer countries fare on indicators of three dimensions of innovation performance—capacity, activity and results.
