Our banking system is geared too much towards graduated benefits to the already arrived and not enough for those struggling to get ahead. We're falling behind in each generation to economic disparity. Buying a house requires more capital, education no longer affordable but being used as a means to capture market of young people indebted to costly loan mechanisms. Take actions which profit younger people who have fewer assets by universal child care affordable, free university, Canada Post banking.

Challenge Canadians by Issuing Challenges

Many of today's social "challenges" have a department, agency, or other organization devoted solely to tackling the issue. This has had a limited track record of success due to a number of reasons, including myopic thinking, only having the "usual suspects" of stakeholders at the table, and large and slow moving bureaucracies.

My proposal is to harness the collective brainpower of all Canadians to help solve some of these social challenges through the issuance of Grand Challenges similiar to the challenges issued by the U.S. Government's Challenge.gov website. By having a Government of Canada website that publishes a list of challenges: i.e. how to solve homelessness for veterans, how to increase affordable housing, how to issue microloans to Canadians, how to increase the birth rate in Canada, etc... and asking Canadians to submit solutions to them is a low-cost and innovative way to reach a much broader audience who may not even know about some of the social challenges in Canada. 

Benefits of having a Grand Challenges website:

- Government and/or non-government organizations may submit challenges to the general public

- Can have sponsors (The Alzheimer's society may sponsor a challenge that tries to develop new innovative ways to reverse dementia) for some of the challenges and could potentially offer prizes (monetary, recognition, contract) 

- The first step in solving a problem is identifying the problem. Not all Canadians are aware of the pressing social challenges of the day. Having a central website will allow more innovative ideas to germinate as Canadians with different perspectives have an opportunity to share their knowledge.  

- Once you have a list of plausible solutions to a challenge, then publish these potential solutions and have Canadians comment on them, add to them, in an iterative process etc...Think of it like a "Wikipedia of Ideas" where the best solutions are based on a foundation of previous ideas.   

The new solutions that will be developed will ultimately benefit all Canadians. Challenges stimulate markets and create industries, build communities of citizen scientists and change people’s lives.

Developing an inclusive Canadian innovation accessibility digital communication strategy

The digital economy is driving economic prosperity through increased productivity and market growth,, but the ability to use new emerging technologies is currently at the heart of social inclusion, with those excluded being left out of many work, entertainment, communication, healthcare and social benefits. About 15% of the world's population live with a disability, and the prevalence of disability is growing due to population ageing and the global increase in chronic health conditions.In 2005, Ontario became the first jurisdiction in Canada, and a world leader in implementing proactive, enforceable, compliance-based accessibility legislation. The standards requireOntario organizations to identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities in key areas of daily living. Fundamentally, accessibilityis about expanding market opportunities to achieve sustainable growth in revenue, return on investment, and profitability; And not just about legal compliance. Due to the life challenges, people with disabilities tend to be creative thinkers and problem solvers in innovation technologies. Many of the mainstream technologies we enjoy today were initiated by research and development in resolving a disability challenge.Unfortunately, much of the digital communication systems being implement throughout Canadian organizations is inaccessible to blind and deaf Canadians. This is revealed in statistics that show more than 80% of Canadians with vision loss are unemployed, and about 25% live below the poverty line. To reverse this trend we need greater participation of skilled blind professionals in the decision making process of government strategies that will build a more prosperous Canada. Currently Canadian digital communication strategies present barriers in the participation of Canadians with disabilities.We need an integrated accessibility growth strategy that link the Ministries of Innovation, Employment, Infrastructure, and Persons With Disabilities. We need competent and well informed leaders, who understand the impact of digital communications on the quality of life for all Canadians. We need a prosperity strategy that maximizes the skills of disabled Canadians, and promotes greater inclusion. We need to enable Canadian innovators by stimulating creativity, and enable disabled Canadians by getting smart technologies into their hands as soon as possible.

Expand access to high-quality work placement opportunities

Anyone who's tried to break into the job market can tell you that most employers ask for 2-3 years of experience, even for entry-level jobs. Work placement programs, like co-ops, internships and apprenticeships, are an invaluable way for students to get real experience in the workplace to complement their technical skills, while helping defray their tuition costs and reducing the level of debt they graduate with. Making high-quality work placements available to more students will equip Canada's youth for today's (and tomorrow's) competitive labor markets. But this isn't just a matter of giving more funding to existing programs. There are serious gaps and shortfalls in the way that work placement is carried out today, which is one reason why there's such a wide disparity in outcomes from post-secondary education. The federal government has a great opportunity to fill in those gaps. By doing so, it will lay the groundwork, not just for a more productive labour force, but for a more inclusive economy.

The quality and availability of work placement programs varies greatly between fields. Students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects can find rewarding co-op jobs at high-profile and exciting firms. Arts students, who make up the largest part of the undergraduate class at most universities, have far fewer opportunities to gain relevant and high-quality experience in the workplace than their peers in STEM fields. 

Just as important, there is a huge variation in the quality of work placement positions even within the same field. Many employers use students as a source of cheap, temporary labour with no regard for their career development. Computer science students who fail to get their dream jobs at Google might find themselves working in a call center instead. Internships can be rewarding, enriching experiences- or the exact opposite, sometimes even within the same organization. Worse, it can be impossible for applicants to know what kind of experience they'll get from a given posting.

This means that students with limited financial resources can't rely on co-op programs or internships for income through their studies. They might well find that a minimum-wage job flipping burgers or stocking shelves, which offers reliable income without needing to sit through extensive interviews or buy expensive work attire, makes more financial sense than trying to find a co-op or an internship. These students are being left behind, working dead-end jobs while their better-off peers compete for plum assignments. 

The intense competition for the best work placements means that they're likely to go to financially secure students who are highly motivated, have good interpersonal skills, and who are studying high-demand subjects- in other words, the same people who would probably be able to find a good job after graduation no matter what. 

To expand students' access to high-quality work placement programs, the Government of Canada should:

  • Encourage employers to use work placement programs for fields and occupations that so far have been under-represented;
  • Facilitate new or reformed work placement programs to better meet the needs of employers in fields that traditionally haven't employed students;
  • Ensure that work placement offerings are aligned with the future job prospects of graduates, so that every student has the ability to launch their career with a work placement opportunity;
  • Create programs aimed at students who are a poor fit for traditional work placement opportunities, such as those with language deficits, disabilities, or those who lack developed interpersonal skills for the workplace;
  • Ensure that employers are open and transparent in their job postings about the type of position they are offering, the scope of work, the degree of responsibility, and the skills the experience will foster; and,
  • If necessary, amend existing programs to prevent employers from posting jobs that do not provide a valuable experience to students.

Like any top athlete, successful businesswoman and leader, it takes belief and vision first and then courage. What does it look like to be the number one innovative country in the world? Illustrate, depict, demonstrate what this means with a strong narrative and video or Virtual Reality depiction. Artists/visionaries: show us the Canada we want in 20-30 years. Business community, academia, governments and problem solvers: show us how to get there. Ideas via crowdsource methods will flourish with the challenge and problem statement.

Brand Canada as the Innovation leader and innovative individuals, companies, investors, talent will be attracted to Canada and will want to be a part of this team. Innovation ambassadors, champions and mentees (in training as future innovation leaders) are titled as such to take on the role of fostering an innovative culture and promoting Canada Innovation.

Recognize and award innovation: Innovation Pulitzer or Nobel peace prize equivalent will bring the best of the best. A national competition should be held in lead-up to the international competition for the top prize, various age categories (youth and students included). Canada to host the global competition.

Sharing and Launching ideas: Platform and Courage We have ideas, but where do we place them and what do we do with them? Facilitate an idea board or ideas bank for Canadians to connect with companies or transition to start our own business. Further IP or patent free info service for Canadians to bring their ideas, receive funding support to patent. Services including mentoring to help a busy Canadian to share and make use of an idea would help.

Stay Innovative!

incentives for innovation

I am a Canadian living in Seattle. I moved recently since I got an offer from Microsoft with a pay package I have never seen before in Toronto. I also have another person on my immediate team in the exact same situation as well as many others in sister teams. I am sure the Canadian government is aware of this and aware of how much tax money has been lost due to us leaving.

 

I would like to propose that the Government add higher incentives for companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Apple to set up shop in Canada with development centers. I am aware that these companies already have offices in major cities. However, these offices are mainly for selling to Canadians. They are not there to innovate or produce anything new. 

 

One way to do this is to offer a one time or recurring tax incentive for innovative tech companies. These + the deep talent pool in Canada and business friendly rules should attract many companies to the region. 

 

Another option is to open up Canada to more liberal and flexible regulation when it comes to innovation. For example, why not make self driving cars legal TODAY? Why not have Canada become the first country with this technology fully integrated into society. Canada has an opportunity to become a world leader in this field. As a side benefit, there are many companies that would bring their development teams to the region.

 

A similar idea can be applied with drones. For example, why not let Amazon test out their drone delivery in Canada first. Canadians are envious of Americans due to their access to easy online deliveries from Amazon. Canadian Amazon pales in comparison. Bring drone development to Canada could be a huge boost to innovation as well as have many positive unintended consequences when Amazon expands many of their services to Canada.

 

Once these companies open offices in Canada, it will also send a ripple effect within the country. All of a sudden we will have many experienced developers moving between these global tech companies. These are the people that are also most likely to start their own companies in the future.

 

Seattle has a deep talent pool because of exactly the same reasons. Outside of Microsoft, Google and Facebook have large offices in the area. There are also numerous startups and smaller companies attracting talent from all over the world. Canada can and should emulate that model.

 

Thanks

Leon

There is a trend in Europe to engage in Community energy.  Over 50% of our future students live in rural areas.  We need to build a culture for our rural communities. Applied Science potential in our Atlantic provinces is rural and having students move to urban centres is causing concerns for the future of communities in Canada.  Canada need to keep energy in the communities and most Atlantic Canada communities are near fast moving bodies of water resources. With run-of-the-river flow systems these smaller communities can look after their energy poverty areas and build new water-based products.  In Atlantic Canada we have a lot of water-based manufactureres - we now need to look at making our own. https://youtu.be/mQKaqimUzCw

Today's youth 10-18 have grown up with technology in their hands.  We need Canadian youth to be producers of this technology not just mere consumers.  They need to be attracted and given the rights skills to become problem-solvers using technology.

There is evidence that this is working with Canadian success stories.  Two years ago a team of five girls from the University of Calgary won the prize for innovation in the world's largest tech entrepreneurship contest Technovation. Other cities have also participated:  Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver etc.

This early exposure to critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills and entrepreneurial skills to address local problems with technology is key for today's youth especially young girls, so that they feel empowered to be part of this innovative society we live in and contribute to diverse solutions.

My recommendation is to offer this three-month program - Technovation - (as an optional/spare course) in every school in every city and town and community centre and library so that young women today become tomorrow's innovators.

Voici un inspirant projet canadien d'envergure mondiale qui répond à la question de l'entreprenariat:

Article Radio Canada: http://www.rcinet.ca/fr/2016/06/16/bakhoa-nguyen-ehappypedia-pour-changer-le-monde-une-parcelle-de-bonheur-a-la-fois/

Donnez une attention médiatique à de tel projet et encouragez d'autres entrepreneurs à lui faire compétition. Partager un rêve et surprendre tout le monde avec des idées innovatrices est la nature même des entrepreneurs.

Le besoin est d'avantage d'inspirer et de pousser l'entrepreneur à réaliser son projet et à tester le terrain plutôt que d'essayer de le cadrer et lui éviter des erreurs. Les erreurs et les échecs n'ont pas la même signification pour les entrepreneurs... ils n'arrêteront devant rien si leur idée est claire.

Étant mariée à un entrepreneur né, j'ai appris à le supporter les hauts et les bas. Tant qu'il y a encore de l'espoir, les bas ne sont que des opportunnités pour rebondir plus fort. Ce ne sont pas des beaux mots, c'est la réalité des entrepreneurs.

Worker Cooperatives are democratically-run enterprises which have been proven through many studies to be more sustainable than traditional, capitalist-owner enterprises.

Because the people who own the business are those that work in the business, they have several advantages to capitalist, top-down enterprises:

  • More likely to keep work in the community where the business is based (and not offshore jobs), as the owners have a direct interest in the community (as they live there)
  • A fair and equitable distribution of profit, therefore enriching local communities instead of shareholders
  • As every worker is also an owner, this brings true democracy and democratic values to the workplace, where adults spend most of their lives.

Cooperatives should be the new standard in business organization. Let's have Canada lead the way!

Too often supporting entrepreneurs is done through an incubation process that involves a committee that selects 'promising' projects from a field of contenders. The statistics on such incubation approaches is clear - the results are poor, with very few succeeding beyond the support period, and fewer still still functioning after two years. 

This 'cream-skimming' approach is inferior to a bubble-up approach. This would entail a low-bar of acceptance into a 'co-working + resources' environment, where all have access to support, coaching and basic infrastructure. From this environment, the 'experts' can be as out of the way or as helping as needed. Strong entities will survive on their own merits, rather than weak entities with good schmooze-skills being propped up in a traditional incubator.

Unlock Canada’s Greatest Resource, Land.

Mots clés:

The Canadian population is becoming more urbanized. As urban density increases, urban properties get smaller and property values increase uncontrollably.

We have lost the back yard, the basement, and the garage. These are places of experimentation where innovation is practiced, prototypes are built, and small businesses start. There is simply a shortage of space to create and engage in projects on a small scale. Renting space is prohibitively expensive, especially considering the limited means and disposable income most Canadians have after paying their high mortgages. Raising capital to pursue an idea is not a possibility for most people, nor should it be a barrier to pursue one’s concept or idea. Urbanization is a reality and we must adapt.

Outside of cities there are very large swathes of land that sit unused for generations. The use and division of this land is locked by land use regulation and subdivision legislation. These regulations limit how much the land can be subdivided, effectively creating a minimum entry point to buy land.  That entry point is out of reach for most Canadians. The price per acre is affordable, but due to subdivision rules there is a minimum number of acres one has to purchase, so it becomes prohibitively expensive.  In rare cases, if land is already subdivided into smaller parcels, then the price goes up to match the difficulty in subdividing, and it becomes too expensive as well. For example, let’s say I need 10 acres of land to start an organic farm, the average price per acre where I live is $3,000 which is affordable, but I would have to buy 160 acres to get the $3,000 price putting my minimum required investment at $480,000. If I bought the $160 acres, it would be virtually impossible for me to subdivide it and sell what I am not using and recover my costs. Because subdividing is so difficult and rare that same 10 acres subdivided already would cost around $230,000. This resource is frozen and unused because the barriers to entry are so high. One of the reasons the regulations are in place is to maintain the historical natural look and way of life of the Canadian country side. They are there in place to maintain the status quo. But we must adapt, evolve, and innovate to match our new realities and our population’s needs. How did maintaining the status quo ever become the default correct path. This is contrary to innovation, freedom and opportunity.

Canadians like myself long for the opportunity to own an affordable small parcel of land that would suit their needs and projects. The land parcels could be as small as an acre or two. Possible land uses include a small organic farm, a small orchard, a greenhouse operation, an eco-tourism site, A solar energy installation, a church retreat, an off grid cabin manufacturing site, a cooperative garden, a bio-diesel demonstration plant, a hay collection and export point of sale location, a place to walk your dog, a robotics testing site, an obstacle course track, an artist’s retreat, a specialized animal farm, just use your imagination.

If the land can only be bought and sold in large parcels, we lose the opportunity of utilizing that land as a resource. Through progressive legislation and by allowing subdivisions we can unlock the land as a frozen resource and create liquidity in that market. This would stimulate the economy, create jobs, enhance skills, create wealth, and stimulate innovation through opportunity. Canada cannot continue to primarily rely on large business for meaningful job creation. We need to encourage localized micro economies in our path towards innovation and financial security.  We can achieve these goals responsibly and at the same time respect land use regulation and zoning, we already do this effectively in the city.

I encourage you to consider the matter presented above.

Thank You.

Winning in the New Economy: Seven Steps Toward a Canadian Digital Innovation Strategy

Summary of Discussion Paper:

 

Canada has done a good job investing and

nurturing the social and cultural conditions

(the Canadian multicultural brand) that make

it an attractive “place” to live and work. We

need to further leverage this advantage to retain

and attract talent - key to our ability to drive

and grow our digital economy, especially in

Information Communication and Technology

and other creative-class sectors.

 

We have the talent and multicultural base to

develop global content for billions of people and,

as such, create a multitude of revenue streams

from technology, platforms and content. We

need government and industry to align behind

a unified, national digital innovation strategy to

support Canada’s digital transformation. Such a

strategy must recognize the need to do much

more to support entrepreneurs, innovators, creators

and risk takers.

Achieving this ambitious but necessary goal will require

wide-scope collaboration among government, the

private sector and academia.

This discussion paper is intended to continue the

broad conversation as we move toward a national,

digital innovation strategy. My comments and perspective

are constrained to areas of interest and knowledge

as a professional who has been immersed in the

digital world from a strategic planning, marketing,

technology and content perspective for more than

that the federal government, in collaboration with

others, can take now to realize our collective digital

innovation goals.

We could be encouraging innovative start-ups to use Canada as a base and reciprocally set up agreements with incubators for Canadian innovators with incubators/accelerators in other countries.

This is particularly important for start-up companies where the target market is outside Canada. The centers could even be public-private partnerships.

Bir fikrim var çalıştığını biliyorum ancak mühendislik yeteneğim yok. TPE uygun hazırlanmış patent başvurumu ücretsiz onaylatabilecgim bir devlet var mı. Bu projede ortak olacak varsa yazsın mezun işsiz ler olarak böyle insanlara verilecek eniyi cevap alanımızda çalışıp dünyanın en iyi tekniğini yapmaktır diye düşünüyorum. Proje ortağının iletişim için yabancı dil bilmesi ve araştırmayı bilimsel dille ifade edebilecek kadar fizik bilmesi gerek.   Norveç Kanada gibi yenilenebilir enerjiye onem veren bir ülkeye başlamalıyız. Petrole dayalı sanayilerin geliştiği yerde bizi sevmezler zannımca Araştırma aşamasında eski çalışmalar enerjinin korunumu kanunu gereği çalışmadığı da oldu. Fizik kanunları değişmez ancak kanunu etkileyen çevre değişirse bu kanunla yeni durumu aciklayamazsiniz durum bu abicim kısaca düşen bir kütle kendi ağırlığını düştüğü seviyeye çıkarmaZ ancak kendi çıkarmasa da olur başka bir kuvvet çıkarır biz sadece geçişi sağlayacağız. Anliyorsunuzdur gençlerde zehir gibi kafa var. Hiç paramız yok ancak fikrimizi onaylatarak dünyayı değiştirebiliriz. Doğru yere başvurmak ve doğru bir arkadaş lazım hepsi bu   Dikey tüp içine zeminden moleküler yoğunluğu. Az olan madde ekleyince yükseliyor, havadan ağır düşüyor FREE ENERJI" .   Sistemin mantığı şu. A. 5kg ağırlığı pet şişeye koysan su içinde yüzeye çıkar B.Hava içinde yercekimiyle düşer C. Hava ve su kutlesinde hareket ettiği yol geçiş noktasından bu iki maddenin arasından karışmadan gecer   Örnek veriyorum bir Calaskar dişlisi 10 m boyunca bu 5 kg kuvvete maruz kalsa, 1 ton ağırlığı 25 cm kaldırıyor. Bu alana giren düşen kütle yalıtım düzgün olursa geri yüzeye çıkar bunu anlamayacak ne var. 5lt lik kaptan 200 tane koysanız üst üste birtonu kap darasi kadar geçer ve yaklaşık 1 kap 25cm ise 50 metre yükseklik demek 50m de düşme demek 100 metre yol demek. 100 metre hareket 25cm iş yapmaz mı ya 10 m de bunu yapar 10m de yalıtım sistemini eksantrik mili gibi kapatsa 80m enerji fazlası var.  Türkiye içinde birçok yere başvurdum uygulanabilir bulmadılar

Only 18 per cent of computer sciences degrees are held by women ... No matter which career women ultimately pursue, coding teaches the fundamental problem-solving, critical thinking, and creative skills that help them succeed. We need to engage more women in the creation of technology - namely teaching women to code if we want to build products that will better serve all Canadians and allow Canada to thrive on every front.

At Ladies Learning Code, we look forward to working with the Government of Canada and our communities across the country to train and develop young female programmers that will change the technological face of this country, forever.

Canada is a leader in artificial intelligence. Nviadia's blog, Softbank's Son, Eric Schmidt, Baidu's Ng and other authorities indicate that subsets of AI are sweeping rapidly across industries and economies. Canada or Canadians lead in the benchmarks and Canadian clusters are found in various countries. Supply chains know no national borders and we should thank America for trillion$ of support for about 150 years. Here's a few applications of NLP technology to be developed. Not just ASR but NLU! Canadian patents pre-date Siri!

We are Code Heroes and we are launching a program to teach people of all ages in the region of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, how to code. We have created an affordable, fun, and engaging program this summer to bring tech education and digital literacy to areas that are under-served and are doing so as a nonprofit organization. Receiving help from the Government in terms of resources and funding will help us bring innovation and amazing learning opportunities where there are currently no offerings.

Protect highly skilled workers against the export of their jobs by globalisation

I do not know the solution but this is the problem.

The drop in oil prices has obviously been a major contributor to the decline in the employment prospects of highly skilled engineers and engineering designers but there is another reason........ Foreign overseas outsourcing of design and fabrication.

 For the past fifteen years or so Engineering companies in Alberta and the world have been encouraged by their clients and shareholders to maximise shareholder value by reducing the cost of engineering design and fabrication. As I have said we are a highly skilled group and those skills are reflected in our pay scales, we also use very complex and sophisticated 3D CAD software to assist in the design process, the lease of that software costs between $8000 & $10000 per year per person.

 The cost of the software is non- negotiable and global so the only available area for cost cutting is the pay scale. It is the perception of our clients and their shareholders that the software somehow automatically designs the plant and that paying a designer in Mumbai India one third of an Alberta designer is good value for money. What they do not realise is that without the skillsets of experienced Canadians a large amount of rework required to correct the flawed designs produced by inexperienced foriegn designers. This makes it a very inefficient process.

 Currently up to 70% of the total engineering man hours of major Alberta engineering projects is being outsourced to Asia. The companies who are the initiators and leaders in this practice are often Canadian branches of major American or other non Canadian Engineering Contractors.

 Foreign overseas outsourcing of modularised fabrication is not yet as common as design, but the trend is growing, together with the degree of poor and unsafe workmanship which requires rework on site.

 If the provincial and federal governments are seeking ways to increase employment potential in Alberta by possibly offering investment incentives, then they must also tackle the issue of outsourcing in all Canadian skilled industries, otherwise Canadian taxpayers will be merely subsidising employment in the third world, while losing those high skill sets in Canada.

Inspire not punish youth in university towns

All university towns can become youthful icubators of startups. The students are not solely Canadians but many are filled with international presence. Student housing is reduced to battles of wills between city couselors, citizens and students instead of an educational transition and support of brilliant minds to support the next economy. It is not to house them and keep them under control but to spread them into the community to understand real needs of the people and to inspire them to be responsible citizens. It is not to add restrictions and fines for disorderly behaviour but to inspire small innovation cells within hosted homes, that we can inspire the next FB or mac like companies. Adding more rules to bandaid the inevitable advancement of a new opportunities such as Uber and airbnb to protect an archaic system stagnates growth and innovation.  Instead we should embrace new ideas and protect not  incombant groups  but encourage a fresh look of what is best for all citizens. Perhaps by keeping focus on the end goal, there may be a better solution. A new growing group of retirees dominates the demographic and I see this as an opportunity. Engaged to enjoy the smaller towns they can be inspirational supporters of youth, especially those who continue to aspire purpose after a career of leadership in the various fields. These towns can be the little silicon valleys of Canada and I am disappointed that these incubation cells are focused on simply housing and keeping our youth quiet. I presently live in such a town where many students are more interesting in drinking then creating ..even if is a local cell inspired to provide for the town and surrounding communities. Everyone seems to focus on the big ideas or grandiose plans when all the small local hidden treasures lay idle..huh?

National youth STEM, innovation, and entrepreneurship celebration event

Canadian high school students regularly achieve world-class results in international STEM competitions. In 2015 – and again in 2016 – young Canadians won the top award (and the US$75,000 cash prize) at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), topping 1,700 students from 75 countries. Canadians have won the Sanofi International Biogenius Challenge, FIRST Robotics Competition World Championships, and numerous STEM Olympiad competitions from astronomy to mathematics. Canadians have been top 15 finalists (from over 10,000 global entries) in the Google Science Fair almost every year since it began in 2011 – and won top awards in 2013 and 2014.

Most Canadians – and particularly our youth – are completely unaware. It’s as if our world junior hockey team won and no-one noticed. That doesn’t happen because Canada has a vibrant hockey culture. Thanks to Vancouver 2010 and Own the Podium, we’re developing an Olympic culture. But we need a STEM, innovation, and entrepreneurship culture.

As in sports, a STEM culture needs heroes – rising stars that young Canadians recognize and emulate. When 16-year-old Victoria BC inventor Ann Makosinski appeared on the Jimmy Fallon Show with her hand-heat-powered flashlight – and again a year later with a cell phone charging travel mug – kids noticed. Peltier tile-powered devices – many built by girls – appeared at science fairs across Canada. Building a science and innovation culture is no different to building a hockey or Olympic culture; celebrating excellence and achievement on the national stage and in the media is an essential component.

In 2010, U.S. President Obama initiated what became an annual tradition – the White House Science Fair. Over the past six years, this event has celebrated the winners of a broad range of youth STEM and entrepreneurship competitions at what the President has called, “the most fun day of the year.”

I propose creating an annual event, hosted on Parliament Hill, to recognize Canadian winners of national and international youth STEM, innovation, and entrepreneurship competitions and other young Canadian achievers. They would be invited to share their work with the Prime Minister / Minister of Youth, Minister of Science, Key Opinion Leaders, STEM-related government officials, and most importantly, the media.

Most kids aren’t going to become professional or Olympic athletes, but wanting to inspires and motivates. Let’s celebrate Canada’s youth STEM, innovation, and entrepreneurship heroes and role models.
