What was this engagement about? 

This engagement is seeking industry and public input into the programs, services and global innovation trends that would create a positive impact in Yukon.

A strong innovation culture gives our territory a competitive edge and positions Yukon for continued success in the knowledge economy. Knowledge economy is defined as the usage of knowledge to create goods and services.  Technology growth and innovation is a form of knowledge economy.  It contributes to sustainable economic growth and diversification, fostering a robust and resilient economy with social and wealth benefits for all citizens.

How will my input make a difference? 

This public engagement will help guide how the Government of Yukon can support and drive innovation. Your input is essential to help inform what innovation looks like in your sector and business and the perceived barriers and challenges you are facing. This will influence how the Government of Yukon chooses to invest resources to stimulate and diversify the technology and knowledge economy.
