Ottawa…CATAAlliance, Canada’s One Voice for Innovation lobby group, and leader of the competitive Innovation Nation movement has given the federal government a thumbs up for its ‘innovation’ budget.
CATA CEO John Reid, said, “We have been advocating for a competitive innovation nation, and now the government is setting up Innovation Canada, a new platform to coordinate and simplify support available to Canadian entrepreneurs. It will serve as a one-stop-shop for Canada’s innovators. Bravo!”
He added, “The Liberal government has tabled a budget designed to help Canadians meet the challenges of a fast changing economy and empower women in the workforce, while taking a wait-and-see approach to the America First policies.”

Reid concluded, “Our community was also pleased to see no changes in the capital gains tax regime and stock option terms that would have disconnected the ‘innovation’ spark from advancing Canada to a number one competitive innovation nation status.”
