The national obsession with science, technology and innovation has not yet developed a northern dimension. The small and often isolated communities in the North lack the basics of the innovation era, including reliable Internet service. At present, technological innovations are undermining aspects of northern work and commerce without returning commensurate benefits in other areas. This presentation examines the state of innovation in Northern Canada and considers the best means of helping Indigenous and remote communities capitalize on the potential of the age of scientific and technological discovery.
