This E-Brief introduces a new innovation policy report card, comparing key policy indicators affecting innovation performance across 14 countries, focusing on the implications for Canada.

The report card aims specifically to be useful to policymakers who seek to raise Canadians’ living standards through applying a pro-innovation lens to a suite of public policies. Given that a country’s innovation performance is likely affected by a broad range of policies, such a holistic approach can help avoid a situation in which innovation is promoted through some policies on the one hand, but unwittingly held back by other policies on the other hand.
