    Description:

    Statistics Canada's Survey of Innovation 1999 surveyed manufacturing in the fall of 1999. It was the first innovation survey of selected natural resource industries. This paper is part of a series of working papers based on the Survey of Innovation 1999. This paper details the survey methodology, including decisions taken and lessons learned regarding survey design.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada's annual Economic Conference provides a forum for the exchange of empirical research among business, government, research and labour communities. The conference is also a means to promote economic and socio-economic analyses while subjecting existing data to critical assessment as part of an ongoing process of statistical development and review. This year's theme was Innovation in an Evolving Economy. At the May 6-7, 2002 conference there were 12 presentations, based directly on the analysis of Science, Innovation and Electronic Information Division (SIEID) data. These presentations were given by SIEID analysts, by Statistics Canada analysts in other groups, by facilitated access researchers and by analysts using published or commissioned estimates.

    Description:

    In 1997, 41% of engineering services firms identified themselves as innovators, but only 4% of them had introduced breakthrough products or processes that had the potential of putting these firms in the role of global leaders. There's more than meets the eye in interpreting the myriad of indicators describing the "system of innovation".

    Description:

    Recent studies have demonstrated the quantitative importance of entry, exit, growth and decline in the industrial population. It is this turnover that rewards innovative activity and contributes to productivity growth.

    While the size of the entry population is impressive - especially when cumulated over time - the importance of entry is ultimately due to its impact on innovation in the economy. Experimentation is important in a dynamic, market-based economy. A key part of the experimentation comes from entrants. New entrepreneurs constantly offer consumers new products both in terms of the basic good and the level of service that accompanies it.

    This experimentation is associated with significant costs since many entrants fail. Young firms are most at risk of failure; data drawn from a longitudinal file of Canadian entrants in both the goods and service sectors show that over half the new firms that fail do so in the first two years of life. Life is short for the majority of entrants. Only 1 in 5 new firms survive to their tenth birthday.

    Since so many entrants fall by the wayside, it is of inherent interest to understand the conditions that are associated with success, the conditions that allow the potential in new entrepreneurs to come to fruition. The success of an entrant is due to its choosing the correct combination of strategies and activities. To understand how these capabilities contribute to growth, it is necessary to study how the performance of entrants relates to differences in strategies and pursued activities.

    This paper describes the environment and the characteristics of entrants that manage to survive and grow. In doing so, it focuses on two issues. The first is the innovativeness of entrants and the extent to which their growth depends on their innovativeness. The second is to outline how the stress on worker skills, which is partially related to training, complements innovation and contributes to growth.

    Description:

    This paper presents estimates of intangible investment in Canada for the purpose of innovation, advertising and resource extraction. It first expands upon work by Beckstead and Gellatly (2003), Baldwin and Hanel (2003), Beckstead and Gellatly (2003), Beckstead and Vinodrai (2003) and Baldwin and Beckstead (2003) who argue that the scope of innovative activity extends beyond research and development (R&D) as defined by the Frascati Manual. It extends the definition of innovative activities to include all scientific and engineering expenditures - regardless of whether they are market-based or produced with a firm. The paper also considers expenditures on intangible items such as brands or resource exploration.

    The paper contributes to the existing literature by creating intangible investment estimates (science and engineering knowledge, advertising, mineral exploration by industry) using Statistics Canada's high quality and internally consistent databases. It produces estimates that accord with other intangibles studies (Corrado, Hulten and Sichel 2005, 2006; Jalava, Ahmavarra and Alanen 2007) and shows that traditional R&D type investment estimates account for about a quarter of intangible science and engineering investments.

    Held in Ottawa, Canada, in September 2006, the Blue Sky II Forum examined new areas for indicator development and set a broad agenda for future work on science, technology and innovation (STI) indicators. Emphasis was placed on indicators of outcomes and impacts in order to support monitoring, benchmarking, foresight, and evaluation activities, applied to policies and programs, and their economic and social impacts. As expected the Forum provided ideas and guidance for indicators work in both OECD-member and non-member countries as well as for other international organizations.

    Description:

    Innovative firms cite industry associations as important sources of ideas more frequently than they cite federal government research laboratories or universities according to data from Statistics Canada's 2003 Innovation Survey. We need a better understanding of the contributions and impact of nonprofit innovation enablers such as industry associations, and to achieve that we need to overcome obstacles to identifying them and their contributions in the data. Without this understanding, policy makers may overlook an important class of actual and potential innovation enablers.
