The word “innovation” is at the core of the Trudeau government’s economic policy, appearing 368 times in the budget released 2 weeks ago [pdf, 2.6MB]. The term is part of the new name for Canada’s industry department.
So it shouldn’t be surprising that innovation figures prominently in Canada’s business community. The communications and information technology and services sector is no different. The theme for The 2017 Canadian Telecom Summit [June 5-7, Toronto] is “Competition, Investment and Innovation: Driving Canada’s Digital Future.” The event will explore what drives a more innovative economy, with leading thinkers examining the subject from various angles.
Dan Breznitz, Munk Chair of Innovation Studies, will be speaking June 5. On June 6, Len Waverman, Dean of the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University, will host a panel discussion including David Bray, CIO of the FCC and Jack Mintz, President’s Fellow at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy. And wrapping up on June 7, Namir Anani, CEO of the Information and Communications Technology Council, will host a panel that includes Jacques Magen, Chairman of Celtic-Plus EUREKA cluster, who will be able to share perspectives from Europe.
