Today the Conference Board of Canada gave Canada another “D” grade for innovation. As indicated on the Board website, Canada is at the back of the class. As last year, where Canada also got a “D” grade, this should be another alarming call to government, industry, and members of the public that we need to do our homework. The solutions are not simple but all the more reason to revitalize discussion across many sectors of our economy and act today. No doubt, this country’s intellectual property system should be among the many considerations.
