Support For Ontario's Innovation Agenda

"Ontario's innovation agenda has a heavy emphasis on commerce skills, which are crucial to help us move discoveries to the marketplace and create new jobs and prosperity."
Roger Martin, Dean, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto

"It's especially encouraging to see the long-term commitment to excellence in both basic and applied research. This gives us the foundation for the great discoveries of the future."
Dr. John Evans, Chair, MaRS Discovery District

"By aligning all of the government's activities with the needs of an innovative culture and economy, the agenda ensures that Ontario will get maximum value from these key investments in our future."
Dr. Adam Chowaniec, Chair, Ontario Research and Innovation Council

"This agenda will drive results by supporting strong industry and academic partnerships in areas where Ontario's global innovation strengths align with significant global market opportunities: life sciences and advanced health, clean tech, digital media and advanced information technologies."
Dr. Ilse Treurnicht, CEO, MaRS Discovery District
