Canada Ranks at Top of Innovation

WASHINGTON (March 8, 2012) – In the midst of intense global competition for innovation supremacy among countries, the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation released today one of the most comprehensive assessments ever undertaken of countries’ innovation policies.

Canada and Singapore rank highest across seven policy indicators; the United States excels in all categories except high-skill immigration
