Trudeau Set to Trigger Race for $600 Million Innovation Fund

Canada’s federal budget will launch a competition to pick about a half dozen research clusters that will receive hundreds of millions in government funding, people familiar with the plans say. Innovation and skills training will be a key theme of Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s second budget, due for release March 22 in Ottawa. Last year’s budget allocated up to C$800 million ($600 million) over four years to “support innovation networks and clusters” and this year’s plan won’t include any significant new funding on top of that, according to two people who spoke on condition of anonymity because the document isn’t yet public. The government will launch the process to pick the innovation clusters where the federal money is best concentrated, […]

40% Of Canadian Workers Would Take A Pay Cut For Career Growth

It’s not all about the money, apparently. According to a new ADP Sentiment Survey, 40 per cent of Canadian workers would take a pay cut at a new job in order to overcome a “growth gap” — a lack of career development opportunities from their current employers. Fifty-three per cent of Canadian workers are labelled “The Resigned” and don’t expect career development at their jobs. Of the 828 working Canadians surveyed, 23 per cent said they would take a five per cent pay cut, 12 per cent of employees would take a 10 per cent decrease, and four per cent would take a hit of more than 15 per cent. One-third of Canadians said their employers didn’t offer support such […]

Trump's Hat ‘An Invitation To Canada,' Polish Newspaper Declares

An unusual ad has appeared on the streets of Poland’s capital, Warsaw. It features a picture of Donald Trump’s famous “Make America Great Again” hat, and a declaration that “This is not a hat. It’s an invitation to Canada.” Despite appearances, the ad is not an attempt to lure emigres to Canada instead of the U.S. It’s an ad for one of Poland’s most prominent daily newspapers — Gazeta Wyborcza, a paper founded in 1989 as a source of uncensored news when the country’s Soviet-backed communist government collapsed. It appears to reference recent news that refugees in the U.S. have been crossing the border into Canada, in the wake of Trump’s attempts to ban travellers from a number of Muslim-majority […]

Foreigners (Read: Netflix) Spend More On CanCon Than Local Networks

Netflix has been arguing for a few years that it is a major contributor to the creation of Canadian content — an argument that has often been dismissed out of hand. But a new report from a Canadian media industry group suggests the streaming service may be telling it like it is. According to the report from the Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA), foreign funding of English-language Canadian content accounted for $335 million of the money spent on CanCon last year, compared to $254 million spent by Canadian distributors. A large chunk of that foreign financing likely came from Netflix. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings at the CES 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6, 2016. (Photo: Robyn […]
