Why are we focused on this?

The future competitiveness of the Canadian economy depends to a large degree on its ability to vastly increase AI adoption and the AI talent base, and to build and scale homegrown AI startups to become globally competitive with US and Chinese giants. Completion of this challenging task has a short window of opportunity, but human capital is plentiful and major stakeholders have begun to align.
Let’s help lead the way together.
