What can the Canadian tech and innovation sector expect from #Budget2021?
As the Government of Canada prepares to table its Budget 2021 on Monday, Canadian tech is wondering how much the sector will factor into the federal recovery plan. However, the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis has created uncertainty as to how much the innovation sector will factor into federal budget commitments. The recommendations align with what some in Canadaâ€™s tech sector are hoping to see in the upcoming budget. This points to a major shift in the global economy that shows the importance of the tech sector moving forward. Budget 2019 notably had fewer significant capital commitments towards Canadian tech and innovation compared to prior budgets.
