Driving Growth Through Innovation: Solving the “Canadian Dilemma”


World-renowned for technological and process innovations, Canadian manufacturers are running the risk of falling behind their global competitors. To compete on a world level, Canadian manufacturers face two diametrically opposed challenges. This “Canadian Dilemma” revolves around:

  • A need to invest in disruptive, game-changing innovation for differentiation
  • Access to less diversified sources of R&D funding compared to global counterparts.


Based on a survey of 173 Canadian manufacturers, Canadian Manufacturing Outlook [PDF 2.77MB] discusses the key challenges faced by manufacturing executives, makes comparisons to their global counterparts, and offers valuable suggestions for effective competition on an increasingly global manufacturing stage.
