Why MRI was created
Places that invest in innovation, that stroke the creativity of people, that market their ideas most effectively will become the home to the most rewarding jobs, to the strongest economies and to the best quality of life. We want Ontario to be that place where innovation is inevitable.
The Ministry of Research and Innovation was created to focus on the government's commitment to innovation as the driver of growth across all sectors of the economy.
The Ministry's mandate is to: Develop an integrated innovation strategy and guide its delivery;
Invest in both policies and programs to deliver on the innovation strategy;
and Foster a culture of innovation and showcase Ontario's innovative culture,
nationally and internationally.
We know that success means more highly skilled people working in a more robust and productive economy. It means better jobs for more people. And as a government it means we will meet our Strong People, Strong Economy priority.
