Abstract

This report develops a set of indicators of innovation in a number of the natural resource industries in Canada. It then uses these indicators to assess trends in innovation over time in these industries. The innovative performance of Canadian natural resource industries is also compared with the average for all industries in Canada and with natural resource industries in other countries. The report finds that on most innovation indicators, Canadian natural resource industries perform either at or above the all-industries average and at a an average level internationally.
