The Ministry of Innovation, Science and Economic Development issued a call for ideas regarding Canada’s Innovation Agenda. The CIAIC response included a number of ways the IDM sector can continue to help position Canada as a global leader in innovation. These included:

  • Reducing barriers to collaboration, within IDM and across sectors
  • Mechanisms to encouraging risk-taking, such as a tax credit claimed on an annual basis for labour expenditures on innovative products, regardless of the eventual completion or financial success of the project
  • Funding for companies engaged in the production of content that is awarded on an enterprise, rather than per-project, basis
