New Report will help Ontario’s clean technology companies compete globally

The impact of globalization on Ontario’s economy, along with recent economic developments, has resulted in an urgent need to reassess the core economic strengths of the province’s industrial base. The Cleantech Growth & Go-to-Market Report, analyzes Ontario’s clean technology industry and essential steps that can improve the commercial success of clean technology companies. To become global leaders, Ontario’s clean technologies need greater access to capital, top management talent, and increased domestic market demand for their innovations. Options are identified in the Report for both policy makers and clean technology company managers that, if adopted, could significantly enhance the industry’s competitiveness, create high-value jobs and greatly contribute to Ontario’s and Canada’s future economic prosperity.

The Report will be launched on February 17, at an invitation only event at the MaRS Discovery District with comments from:

John Wilkinson, Ontario Minister of Research and Innovation
