Innovation and creativity on the periphery : challenges and opportunities in Northern Ontario by Heather Hall( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We argue that despite Northern Ontario’s challenges and contrary to perceptions, the region does offer unique opportunities for more innovative and creative forms of economic development. Particular strengths for Northern Ontario include expertise in high-tech mining; eco-friendly forestry; remote health care; and the cultural production of the North. There is also the emergence of a small number of other knowledge-intensive companies spinning out of research at public institutions in Thunder Bay [Northwestern Ontario] and Sault St. Marie. In addition to providing case studies on creative and innovative enterprises, we also explore the challenges and opportunities of economic development in the periphery. We then move to a discussion on the importance of geographically sensitive policy approaches, and we conclude with an examination on the implications of this research for current debates in the economic geography literature on creativity, innovation, and community resilience."--from intro

Ontario in the creative age by Roger L Martin( )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our findings convince us that Ontario is well-positioned to compete and prosper in this ongoing global economic transformation. While the economic environment has worsened since this project was commissioned, the current upheaval only accentuates these trends – especially the shift from more routine-oriented to creativity-oriented jobs that place a premium on analytical and social intelligence skills. Such change is inexorable. We cannot turn away from it; nor can we slow it. We face a critical inflection point. Ontario has tremendous advantages on which to build broad, sustainable prosperity. We have a highly skilled work force, world leading businesses and industries, excellent post secondary institutions, great cities and regions, and a culture that values openness, diversity, and social cohesion. But we can become stronger and more competitive."--from intro

Canada's increasing human capital : equitable returns? by Kevin Stolarick( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A marked effort has been made over the past several decades to increase educational attainment at all levels across Canada. Part of that effort has been focused on increasing the share of the Canadian workforce that has completed a university (four-year) degree or higher (master's or doctoral degrees). While the share of the workforce with a BA or above has been increasing, the individual impact from that increase in human capital is less apparent. While overall education levels have increased, wages, in real dollar terms, have remained fairly stagnant. Although this is the case at the overall level, the pattern may be different for subgroups of the Canadian workforce. This paper specifically examines the changing nature and relationships in educational attainment and real wages for immigrants, visible minorities, and women across the Canadian workforce from 1971 to 2006. It also investigates these same relationships for the provinces. The results show that while these groups are more likely to have attained a university degree (this is more recent for women), the wages they receive have consistently remained below the Canadian average. Although human capital has increased, the equity of the returns to human capital has remained unchanged
