The ministry's key priorities are: extracting value from Ontario's excellence in research and commercialization; focusing investment in areas where Ontario can be globally competitive; leveraging skills, knowledge and funding; developing an innovation-friendly business climate; and enhancing the Ontario government's role as a catalyst for change.
