Occasional Paper Number 10—Endogenous Innovation and Growth: Implications for Canada, August 1995

Labour productivity growth will continue to be the dominant determinant of economic growth in Canada in the future. The paper explores how investment in R&D is a mechanism through which labour productivity can rise. It concludes that policies encouraging the accumulation of human capital, directly supporting R&D activity, and ensuring access to international knowledge and markets, can improve growth prospects.
