President of the University of Toronto to address Economic Club of Canada

May 2, 2013

OTTAWA, ON — Cana­da is at increas­ing risk of los­ing ground glob­al­ly in research per­for­mance – a key fac­tor in attract­ing, train­ing and retain­ing the tal­ent on which our capac­i­ty for inno­va­tion depends. In Bud­get 2013 the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment sig­nalled a very wel­come inter­est in rein­forc­ing excel­lence in post-sec­ondary research. Pro­fes­sor Nay­lor will make the case for a Cana­di­an research excel­lence fund as a prac­ti­cal response to ensure our long-term eco­nom­ic and social pros­per­i­ty.
