Canada's Report Card

Perhaps the timing is intended, but the Conference Board of Canada today released "How Canada Performs: A Report Card on Canada" just as school is out for the summer. As an article in today's Report on Business puts it: "Canada 'losing' on innovation." Clearly there is much to be done for increasing Canada's productivity. As a viable component in the research and development continuum, the George Brown College Research Labs, as are all colleges engaged in research, are well positioned to work with our colleagues on this national problem. As I am heading out on vacation for the next several weeks, I'll look forward to picking up this topic again when I return at the end of July.
