Techvibes: Budget 2018 – Canada’s Plan for Innovation, STEM and Diversity

The federal Canadian government released the 2018 budget yesterday. The 367-page document, tabled by Finance Minister Bill Morneau, does not necessarily delve deep into exactly how every dollar will be spent but instead provides a vision of what the country would like to achieve over the coming year.

The budget mentions existing Innovation and Skills Plan efforts, such as the Superclusters as well as strategy tables and reforms to existing training programs.
