Industry Minister Christian Paradis (@christianparad) has provided an update
we are committed to delivering a Canadian digital economy strategy:
- One that is based on my conversations with you;
- One that challenges our innovators;
- One that drives new technology; and
- One that, through technology, benefits our entire economy.
Addressing the challenges we face with regard to access to capital and a literate workforce as well as adoption and productivity is also part of this strategy's framework.
This is the foundation upon which we will build a clear strategy for the sector and the economy as a whole.
But, later this year, when we put that strategy forward, it will only succeed if industry as well as federal, provincial and territorial governments work together.
