RE: Innovation Nation Policy Platform

Please take a few minute to review the 2009 "Innovation Nation" Platform, a set of recommended changes to Canada's investment climate to ensure that government policies are favourable to Canada's technology companies.

You will see that there are six areas or core planks for immediate action; specifically we are seeking guidance for additions to the Platform. Refer to:

CATA then takes a stand on these issues, supported by professional Survey, Research and Consultation resources. We recently completed a set of video interviews with CATA National Spokesperson, Terence Matthews, supportive of SR&ED, Technology Test Beds, Export Markets, among other core areas.

Kindly send your guidance and feedback to with "Innovation Nation" in the Subject Line.
