Mobilizing Science and Technology to Canada's Advantage
In November 2006, Canada's federal government released Advantage Canada, an economic plan to make Canada a world leader for current and future generations. Advantage Canada is based on the premise that Canada already has tremendous strengths-including the drive and ingenuity of our people, the relative strength of our fiscal position, and our strong research base. It also recognizes that Canada can and must do more to turn our ideas into innovations that provide solutions to environmental, health, and other important social challenges, and to improve our economic competitiveness.
This science and technology (S&T) strategy-Mobilizing Science and Technology to Canada's Advantage-is the government's plan to achieve these goals. This publication sets out a comprehensive, multi-year science and technology agenda.
