Key events included: Governor General’s Innovation Awards, #BCTECH Summit, and the Government of Canada Blueprint 2020 Innovation Fair.

“Innovation is very simple. It’s simply doing things better. It’s a mindset. Looking at something and saying, ‘How can we do that better?’” The Right Honourable David Johnston, 28th Governor General of Canada and Chair of the Rideau Hall Foundation.

Celebrating national innovation!
