Big data, big opportunity, but Canada has to get it right says Canadian Chamber of Commerce

(OTTAWA) – January 22, 2019 – Big data represents a potential windfall of $30-billion for Canada by 2021 if federal decision-makers get the policy framework right, says the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s recent report, Data Fast Forward: A Prescription for Innovation, Balance and Trust.

Released today, the Chamber’s report comes as the federal government is reviewing Canada’s data governance laws and outlines how Canada can position itself as a global data innovation sweet spot with a policy approach that lands between the restrictive European regime and the laissez-faire US approach.

Statement on Government funding for oil patch: Ottawa must act on energy sector’s problems, not just the symptoms

(OTTAWA) – December 18 – Today’s announcement by the federal government of 1.6 billion dollars to support Canada’s struggling oil and gas sector is a band-aid, not a cure for what ails Canada’s oil and gas sector, says the Hon. Perrin Beatty, President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

“The country’s struggle to get our energy products to global markets, where they can get a fair price, is the issue. It is a failure that hurts the entire country,” said Mr. Beatty. “That pain will continue until we finally build much-needed pipelines. So, while today’s announcement is a welcome recognition of how serious the issue has become and will provide some relief, it is no substitute for a clear plan to get a pipeline built.”
