The economic powerhouses of the world today and in the future are fuelled by technology and innovation. We, as Canadians, must not only be innovative to keep pace, but we must celebrate our innovative Canadians to help maintain the belief and confidence in ourselves as a nation to succeed in this highly competitive world. An investment in celebrating Canadian innovation is an investment in the economic health of Canada and the welfare of Canadians.
