Abstract

Many economic studies have examined the conditions under which innovation occurs in Canadian firms. We take the opposite view and look at the impediments to innovations perceived by Canadian firms. We focus on three service sectors: communication, financial services and technical business services. The data come from the 1996 innovation survey conducted by Statistics Canada. The first objective of this paper is to explain why firms perceive the obstacles to innovation differently. We do so by performing a data analysis and an econometric analysis. The second objective is to find out whether some obstacles are complementary. If there is complementarity, a systems approach is called for to efficiently remove the innovation barriers. De nombreux travaux se sont penchés sur les conditions qui favorisent les efforts en matière d’innovation technologique dans les entreprises canadiennes. L’objectif de cette étude est d’examiner l’innovation sous l’angle opposé, à savoir les obstacles perçus à l’innovation. Nous examinons les obstacles dans les industries des communications, de la finance et des services techniques. Les données proviennent de l’enquête innovation de 1996 menée par Statistique Canada. Premièrement, nous essayons de faire ressortir quelques facteurs expliquant la perception des obstacles à partir d’une analyse des données et d’un modèle économétrique. Deuxièmement, nous cherchons à déterminer dans quelle mesure certains obstacles sont complémentaires entre eux. Si complémentarité il y a, il faut adopter une approche systémique aux barrières à l’innovation pour y remédier efficacement.
