Celebrating 150 years of Canadian innovation

It's hard to believe Canada Day is almost here. As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of confederation, what better time to look back on all that we have achieved?

Our country has a lot to be proud of — from Frederick Banting and Charles Best, who revolutionized diabetes treatment, to James Till and Earnest McCulloch, whose discovery of stem cells helped map the future of medicine. Canadian innovations are advancing the field of science and improving lives across the globe.

What will the next 150 years hold? If we can harness the curiosity of our youth and encourage diversity and equity in organizations, it will surely be an exciting time.

I invite you to read my recent op-ed for the Canadian Science Policy Centre and join us for Waterloo's Canada Day Celebration on July 1.
