Message from the Minister
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has committed to resetting the innovation agenda in the province as part of its overall plan to strengthen and diversify the economy. The aim of a new Business Innovation Agenda is to expand the pool and capacity of Newfoundland and Labrador’s economic wealth generators; innovation and growth-focused businesses.
Input and advice from the province’s innovation and entrepreneurial stakeholders will be critical to identifying and designing priority tools, resources and investments that enable the advancement of innovation in new (start-ups) and established small businesses. The private sector, industry groups, communities, academia, and governments of all levels play a role in impacting innovation performance in Newfoundland and Labrador.
There are a number of ways ecosystem stakeholders can meaningfully contribute to the Business Innovation Agenda development process: explore the web site; review the Discussion Document; participate in one of the discussion tables in your region; or simply download the discussion questions and submit your individual or group advice. The feedback submitted will be the foundation of our work to advance business innovation in Newfoundland and Labrador.
I am confident that our collective efforts will result in the right kind tools to help business innovation thrive in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Honourable Christopher Mitchelmore
Minister of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development
