“Many organizations recognize the importance of innovation, but they don't know how to achieve it. The answer is design.”

“With design thinking, Canada could innovate toward an inclusive society that brings the national values of equity and inclusive design to the international arena. We have the positive benefits of diversity and of indigenous cultures and design - these are advantages in this strategy. To succeed, we need to strengthen investment in and mechanisms for interdisciplinary research and innovation, including creative and applications-based capacity.”
