Reviewing the Innovation Superclusters Initiative: Success or Failure?

Thursday, November 25, 2021 - 12:30

The Innovation Superclusters Initiative was introduced by the federal government in its 2017 budget with the purpose of creating 50,000 jobs across Canada, accelerating innovation, and increasing GDP by $50 billion over the next 10 years. A PBO report released last year indicates that the superclusters were missing both the job creation and GDP growth targets. The C.D. Howe Institute invites you to join us on Thursday, November 25 to hear an expert panel discuss the superclusters’ successes and challenges, as well as what Canada needs to do to better support an innovation economy.

C.D. Howe Institute events and webinars are open to members and their guests.
