We could be encouraging innovative start-ups to use Canada as a base and reciprocally set up agreements with incubators for Canadian innovators with incubators/accelerators in other countries.

This is particularly important for start-up companies where the target market is outside Canada. The centers could even be public-private partnerships.

Good idea, however, such agreements must be more than just photo-ops for politicians signing general purpose MOUs.  One partnership I think would have potential is the new 475,000 sq ft IoT/hardware innovation space in Kitchener-Waterloo (Catalyst137) partnering up with groups like HAX in Shenzhen and Bolt in Boston.

There are great opportunities for this in agriculture and food systems, combined with BioIndustrial centres (BIC), that can then link with JTI- Swedish Institute of Agricultural and Environmental Engineering, and Praj - Matrix the Innovation Centre in Pune India.
