Treasuring talent, and spending accordingly

As attractive as many Canadians believe their country to be, much more has to be done to make it look that way to the skilled individuals whose contributions should make Canada even more attractive.

Nurturing the entrepreneurial mind-set

Simon Fraser University, in collaboration with the research organization Mitacs, is mounting a concerted effort to provide students across the campus with access to courses and services to help them develop an entrepreneurial outlook on their work. Elicia Maine, who recently became a special advisor to the university’s VP Research and International, says these extensive efforts will benefit these students in their career paths as well as enhancing the talent available for Canada’s innovation ecosystem.
